The Alternative Service Break (ASB) trip program is a unique service-learning experience in which students engage in direct service to a community, while being immersed in the culture and customs of that community. Teams are led by student team leaders and accompanied by faculty advisors. Throughout the trip, team members participate in a variety of cultural, educational, recreational and reflective activities to enhance their service experience. 

Goals of the Program 

  • To help develop and enhance a value for public service, civic engagement and service-learning within the participants.
  • To develop diverse service teams committed to exploring and advocating for social justice issues.
  • To help participants reflect on their privileges and begin to use these to break down the systems that afford unearned privilege in our society.
  • To provide opportunities for participants to reflect on their roles in a global community.
  • To provide opportunities for cultural and language immersion through service projects with diverse individuals and communities.
