First year students, jump in a get connected immediately in programs developed just for you! You have the opportunity to try one or all of the opportunities in your first year!
Do something different for spring break and join your classmates on a trip that will connect you to your classmates, allow you to explore another area of the United States, and apply your experience to your education goals.
Alternative Spring Break, or ASB, is an opportunity for students to use their week off in the spring semester to volunteer in a community in need. ASB is a service endeavor at most Universities in the United States.
Students work together on service projects during the day and have free time or group activities at night. They stay in housing options provided by the local community, such as churches, community centers or hostels. Meals and transportation are included in the cost.
Site locations are determined in late fall along with the cost to attend. If you are interested in this opportunity please fill out the form and information will be sent to your UW-Parkside email when the site location is determined.
