Alternative Spring Break, or ASB, is a week-long, faith based service trip during the March spring break. ASB educates for social justice through community service.

Students and staff travel together, serve others, live in a communal setting and spend their evenings in prayer and reflection. Participants confront issues of hunger, homelessness, extreme poverty, food justice, environmental concerns, rebuilding following a natural disaster and immigration. ASB groups travel to Phoenix, AZ; New Orleans, LA; Houston, TX; and one group serves in the City of Boston and Western MA for the week.

Students interested in participating in ASB must apply and be accepted during the fall semester.
