ASB Advisor Information 2018-2019



Thank you for your interest in advising a 2018-2019 Alternative Spring Break (ASB) trip! For many years our alternative break program has been providing transformation experiences for students to give back to communities around the country. ASB combines education, strong direct service, and thoughtful reflection to create an immersive experience for students to grown through their engagement. Though our experiences are student-led, faculty and staff advisors add an important perspective to the student experience. Below is more information about the the responsibilities and application process for trip advisors. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Casey Krafton, the Active Citizenship and Engagement Associate at the Center for Transformation, at, or come to the ASB Teams’ Information Session for anyone interested in advising a trip.

Alternative Spring Break (ASB) is a week-long service trip where participants volunteer in an area of the country focusing on a community identified need. Not only do participants get the opportunity to travel to a new region, but this is a learning experience of a lifetime through social and cultural connection. Trips will take place during spring break, March 9-17th, 2019. This year we are planning three trips focused on the following identified community needs: Hurricane Relief, Animal Welfare, and Food Insecurity/Sustainability.

Information Session: Wed., October 17 at 4pm, Center for Transformation, Lamson Library 003.

Applications are due by end of day Monday October 22nd.
