What is an Alternative Service Break?

The Center for Community Engagement offers Alternative Service Break (ASB) trips to students as a civic engagement opportunity. ASB encourages community involvement and inspires personal growth through reflection. Students are challenged to apply academic concepts to real world experiences, and to think beyond themselves to gain a new perspective and to grow their appreciation for the impact of service.

This year, we have 3 trips planned:

  • Spring Break: Pickens, SC (12 available spots) – March 3 – 9, 2019
  • Spring Break: Fort Lauderdale, FL (14 available spots)- March 3 – 9, 2019
  • May Trip: John’s Island, SC (8 spots) – May 12-19, 2019
