Welcome to ASB!


Alternative Student Breaks is a student-run service-learning organization that sends Northwestern students on week long trips during Winter and Spring breaks and Pre-Wildcat Welcome Week to locations throughout the country to do volunteer work at various service-learning organizations. ASB not only seeks to involve, educate and heighten students' social awareness, but also strives to encourage lifelong social action.

Living in the Northwestern community offers students plenty of opportunity to study social issues, but not much opportunity to experience them as a reality. Our goal is to better prepare students to become responsible leaders of the community by exposing these issues.
