Alternative Spring Break (ASB) is an experiential learning opportunity that promotes service-learning and community building. Students participate in education, direct service, and reflection in order to become life-long active citizens.
ASB through Student Leadership and Involvement is open to any student in good academic and conduct standing at the University. You do not need previous experience in service or on campus to participate. Each trip seeks to have students from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences.
This year’s Domestic ASB trip will be to St. Joe, Florida. It will be focused on hurricane repair and shoreline cleanup. The group will work alongside several local parks, including TH Stone Memorial St. Joseph Peninsula State Park and the Rish Recreation Area.
In collaboration with the Community Collaborations International, this year’s International ASB trip will travel to San Juan, Puerto Rico to work with community organizers on issues such as home repair, forest recovery, and youth development.

- St. Joe, Florida – $400
