In March of 1987, the Community Service Center launched the Alternative Breaks Program. Seven volunteers traveled to Boone, North Carolina to work with a variety of human service agencies. Since then, the program has expanded, now allowing hundreds of students and staff to spend their spring breaks volunteering with a diverse group of non-‐profits all over the United States.
ASB trips promote community service, develop leadership skills, and create strong bonds among participants. The trips allow volunteers to visit other parts of the country and learn about various social issues firsthand. ASB helps students improve the world around them while inspiring others to do the same.
