Join an ASB Trip
Interested in joining one of our Alternative Service Break trips? You can join one of our teams that travel during spring and summer breaks. Currently enrolled undergraduates are welcome to apply to participate in Alternative Breaks. We will hold an interest session this fall.
To keep up to date on Alternative Break news, join our portal on myUMW.
Participant responsibilities include:
- Before the trip: We encourage you to attend all pre-trip meetings with your ASB group and complete any assignments or tasks assigned by your site leaders. If teams are completing individual fundraising activities, participants are responsible for attending and participating in those events.
- During the trip: Participants are expected to abide by all UMW ASB policies, including our commitment to abstaining from alcohol and drug use during trips. Participants are also expected to take part in active service to the best of their ability. Additionally, along with their team, participants will engage in reflection.
- After the trip: Participants who have received a scholarship award from UMW ASB will be responsible for completing a blog post about their trip.
