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 (cost varies by trip), 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 will be no application for Spring 2015 ASB! That's right! No more pesky application questions, no more waiting; we want participants to take ownership of their service! This year we are doing a Spring ASB registration tabling 'fair' on FEBRUARY, 2ND from 8 - 9 PM in the Vandal Ballroom (note: this is not the International Ballroom but right across the hall). This is going to be run as a first come first served event where participants are able to reserve a trip spot that night. Each service location will have a table with its student leader and faculty/staff advisor informing students about the location and the service to be done. Participants will be able to place their $50 deposit to reserve their spot on the trip.
To sign up for a trip AFTER February, 2nd, if spaces are still available, an online registration will open. This will allow students to see each trip, read a blurb about the service, the number of spots available, and pay the $50 deposit. Once a trip is full it will close and participates will no longer be able to sign up.
What to bring on February, 2nd:
- $50 check or cash deposit (make checks out to BURSAR, UI)
- State issued photo ID
- Your smile :)
