Alternative Spring Breaks

Alternative Spring Break (ASB) is a weeklong immersive living and volunteering experience.  Through meaningful action, reflection and education, volunteers engage in direct service that addresses a critical, social issue. Service areas include affordable housing, disaster relief, youth education, animal care, sustainable food, and more. Volunteers have a chance to explore the culture and history of the area, participate in orientation and training programs, build leadership skills, and develop strong friendships with other team members.


For the first time, we have a formal Program Handbook that describes all of our policies and procedures. Please give it a read!

The ASB 2016 information packet and application are coming soon - please check back on Sept. 9th!

Our inaugural Alternative Weekend registration has just been released! Click HERE to learn more about the service and apply to participate! Please note that the polciies outlined in the Handbook above apply to this new program as well.
