Alternative Spring Break (ASB) is an extraordinary service-learning initiative which connects students to national and international partners, enabling them to engage in meaningful community service and critical reflection. ASB is an immersive year-long program that culminates with a week of social engagement and service-learning with a partner organization during reading week in February.
The reading week experience is preceded by months of preparation, which include listening to guest speaker seminars, watching fascinating documentaries and learning about a specific topic or theme such as poverty, human rights or environmentalism, all considered through the lens of the global community.
