Alternative Service Breaks

Do you want to do something important with your break? Consider joining us for an alternative service break (ASB) trip.

ASB trips are a perfect opportunity to build friendships and network with your fellow student, university staff, faculty and community members. You'll develop your leadership skills by gaining experience in planning and organizing, goal-setting, time management, communication and team-building.

Our office offers both domestic and international trips, so you'll learn an appreciation for other cultures while working within diverse communities. Every trip focuses on a theme or social issue, so you'll be challenged to think critically about root causes and evaluate your own role within the community.

ASB trips are extremely beneficial to students' experiential learning and a lot of fun! Watch the video!
