About Alternative Spring Break at UVA
Alternative Spring Break (ASB) is an entirely student-run service organization established in 1992 to conduct service projects during spring break for University of Virginia students. Originally, the trips were designed to function as a simple, service-oriented alternatives to the standard college break experience. Over time the organization has expanded upon this original set of aspirations and experienced incredible growth in both the quantity and quality of service projects that make up an ASB experience. Signing up to participate in an ASB service project has grown from a simple one-week commitment into a year-round experience that emphasizes self-awareness through educational and cultural programs that take place before, during, and after the projects for the purpose of encouraging a more meaningful trip environment. Participants are able to cultivate their ambitions as service leaders at the University and make positive, meaningful change at sites across the country and around the world. Applications for trips in spring of 2016 are now open! Click "Apply Now" to apply for a trip! Applications will close mid-October.
