Alternative Service Breaks foster connections and build a community around service.


Alternative Service Breaks (ASB) promotes community service, develops leadership skills, and creates strong bonds among its participants. Since its founding in 1988, Boston University student volunteers have spent their spring breaks participating in volunteer work throughout the country, with focuses such as the environment, children, affordable housing, hunger, education, public health, LGBTQ+, and disabilities.
