Alternative Service Breaks (ASB)

Alternative Service Break (ASB) trips provide a meaningful way for students and staff to engage in a group oriented, immersion community service experience and to learn about service issues such as affordable housing, early childhood education, disaster relief, hunger and homelessness, and sustainable development. Key tenants of an ASB trip include meaningful community service, intentional group reflection, and personal leadership development.

Trips are managed predominately by ASB, our student-run organization in partnership with Civic Engagement that seeks to provide affordable and meaningful service trips to Tech students during school breaks. Each break, we send groups of 12-18 students, with two student leaders, and two faculty/staff advisors to cities over the globe.
