Alternative Spring Break: Nashville 2014:  Alternative Spring Break is an opportunity for students to go to another community and give back during their Spring Break. Students do this by volunteering with different community agencies. Not only do you participate in community service, you also have the chance to explore the city and be a "tourist".

Potential Volunteer Opportunities:  (All projects are tentative.)

Potential Explore Opportunities:  (All activities are tentative.)

What have past participants had to say about spending their spring break volunteering?  

"YES, I would recommend it! It's an opportunity to get out of town and do some good for someone else"

"I would recommend the ASB trip to others. It was a wonderful experience; I made new friends, and I was able to help others. I cannot think of a better way to spend your spring break."

"It's a great experience! It's not every day that one gets to explore a city, meet new people, and truly see what others go through. The trip made me feel really good. I enjoyed helping people. Going on an ASB trip can make you appreciate what you have."

This year's Alternative Spring Break location is Nashville, TN from Saturday, March 22-Friday, March 28, 2014.

Students will gain a new perspective and have a memorable spring break.
