Alternative Spring Break (ASB)
Alternative Spring Break is an annual initiative for students to engage in a week-long service program! If you, or any peer, student, or group would be interested in participating please reach out to StudentCommunityService@shepherd.edu.
After participating in the Alternative Spring Break Program, students who are successful will be able to:
- Advocate for social change through service;
- Apply leadership skills to analyze the impacts of poverty, specifically in Appalachia;
- Conceptualize the importance of active citizenship through serving communities different than the students own community;
- Develop both passive and active leadership skills that can be applied to academic, social, and personal life situations.
