Applications Available for Alternative Spring Break 2012

Story posted October 04, 2011

Alternative Spring Break (ASB) trips provide a unique opportunity for students to participate in an intensive public service experience while increasing their understanding of significant social and environmental problems.

Joseph McKeen Center for the Common Good

Check out the Joseph McKeen Center for the Common Good Web site, offering continuously updated content regarding community service opportunities, a schedule of events and other happenings.

Engaged in direct service relating to these problems, students live and work in communities with which they otherwise may have little contact.

Being completely immersed in this environment over an extended period of time allows students to internalize their experience, which can serve as a springboard for a lifelong commitment to social change.

Applications are now available and are due Wednesday, October 26.

Visit the Joseph McKeen Center for the Common Good website for more information.
