Alternative Spring Break is a substance free, student run, organization which seeks to raise awareness of global issues through education and intensive service learning experiences benefiting the host community while fostering friendships among UVM students. Since 1991 ASB has put in over 50,000 volunteer hours! ASB is a fantastic way to meet great people, both UVM students and community member!
Alternative Winter Break is an incredible community service opportunity for those interested in quality direct service and understanding the geopolitical and economic realities of our region.
The program is based upon the notion that when two groups share an experience both come away with something they didn't have before. Put another way both the students providing service and the communities which we go to serve benefit greatly from the experience.
