Spring ASB offers week-long regional trips based in the Pacific Northwest during the University of Idaho spring break.
The cost of Spring ASB is $150 which includes food, travel costs, and housing. The only fees that students may incur are the cost of food during travel days (to and from the University of Idaho) and souvenirs purchased individually.
Trips Offered in 2020
Cultivating Empathy and Embracing Diversity through Refugee Resettlement
Volunteers will have the opportunity to work with a refugee center to help support incoming refugees. Specific roles may vary, but service on this trip will grant every volunteer a better understanding of what the process of integration entails and a chance to learn more about what refugees experience while settling into a new home in the United States.
Breaking the Cycle: Enhancing Education in Incarceration
Volunteers will be serving at a correctional institute that specializes in Retained Jurisdiction sentencing. Retained Jurisdiction provides a sentencing alternative for offenders who might, after a period of programming and evaluation, be viable candidates for probation rather than incarceration. Volunteers will assist in preparation for the reentry of the inmates by assisting teaching of math and language skills, career planning interviews, money management workshops, and improving overall communication.
