Northeastern University: Center of Community Services

Program Overview

Alternative Spring Break (ASB) is a weeklong immersive living and volunteering experience. Through meaningful action, reflection, and education, volunteers engage in direct service that addresses a critical, social issue. Service areas include affordable housing, disaster relief, youth education, animal care, sustainable food, and more. Volunteers have a chance to explore the culture and history of the area, participate in orientation and training programs, build leadership skills, and develop strong friendships with other team members.

A huge thank you to all of the wonderful volunteers and organizations who participated in NU ASB 2017! Check back for more information regarding our 2018 trips.
