Alternative Spring Break

Alternative Spring BreakĀ (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 contact Danielle Stephenson at dstephen@shepherd.edu.

Due to COVID-19 concerns, Alternative Spring Break for 2022 has been cancelled. There will be two service days on April 1 & 2, 2022 on campus for students to earn service hours. More information coming soon!

Learning Outcomes

After participating in the Alternative Spring Break Program, students who are successful will be able to:

  1. Advocate for social change through service;
  2. Apply leadership skills to analyze the impacts of poverty, specifically in Appalachia;
  3. Conceptualize the importance of active citizenship through serving communities different than the students own community;
  4. Develop both passive and active leadership skills that can be applied to academic, social, and personal life situations.
