Alternative Spring Break | Now open to GRAD STUDENTS!

Apply now to be a part of the exciting Alternative Spring Break 2014 program!

The Office and Campus Activities and Graduate Student Association are excited to host its first Alternative Spring Break (ASB) program for graduate students! The ASB program places teams of Drexel students in communities to engage in community service and experiential learning during spring break. The objectives of the ASB program are to involve students in weeklong community-based service projects and to provide opportunities for engagement in activities that benefit the environment, the community, and those in need.

The Alternative Spring Break (ASB) program will be held March 22-30th, 2014. The application must be completed by Monday, February 10th, 2014. Trip notifications will be made mid-February 2014.

This year’s trip includes: PhillyRising, Philadelphia, PA

Your spring break could be spent revitalizing the various districts of Philadelphia with PhillyRising and helping the people in these communities realize their vision for their community. PhillyRising works in neighborhoods that have experienced quality of life concerns like vacancy and lack of resources and many times, crime. Students would work over spring break to rejuvenate these communities and make them more sustainable by maintaining parks and community centers, and ultimately empowering the residents of these communities to become leaders and take ownership of the projects.

ASB Application Instructions:
