Spring ASB

Our Community, Our Connection

Spring ASBs are week long domestic service trips for which all students are eligible to apply. Students give their time during spring break to go to a community to serve, learn, and lead. Teams are composed of 9 students and one faculty/staff advisor.  The experience cost $150 for undergraduate students and $250 for graduate students, which includes travel, food, housing, and incredible human connections.

Spring 2015 is going to be full of new and exciting changes, so stay tuned in to the world of ASB. This year our focus is to continue building the phenomenal community that is the Northwestern United States; our community, our connection. Specifics about service and locations will be posted by the end of January, so stay tuned to find out where a spring break with the Volunteer Center could take you!

There are still spots open to participate in a Spring ASB trip, stop by the Volunteer Center (Commons 301) anytime 8-5pm to snag a spot. All you need to reserve your place is $50 (cash, check, credit, or debit), and a backpack full of excitement!

Volunteers support their mission by helping to build homes and raising awareness of the need for affordable housing.
What will you learn through this service experience?
The University of Idaho group will learn about the need for affordable housing both in southern Idaho and throughout the world. By working side-by-side with Habitat families, participant's will come to understand what a difference it makes to these families to actually be able to afford a home of their own. They will also see that there are many different reasons families are struggling financially.  Since Habitat families must perform many hours of sweat equity to be able to purchase a home, the families may be low income, but they are also hardworking and deserving.
