HU Alternative Spring Break Washington, D.C., March 14 - 21, 2015

Please download the ASB Sponsorship Packet along with the grocery list for the Washington DC iteration of this year's ASB initiative.

A sponsor of ASB 2015 will help fund specific areas such as food, transportation, and/or social activities, or you can fund other needs as a General Sponsor.

Howard University’s Alternative Spring Break (ASB), coordinated through the Office of the Dean of the Chapel, has been taking students on public service missions since 1996 – immersing participants in unique cultures to provide immediate assistance and to reflect on the challenges prevalent in communities throughout society. After Hurricane Katrina in 2005, ASB has consistently taken students to New Orleans in an effort to rebuild the city. Since then, the mission has expanded to include the cities of Detroit, Chicago, the District of Columbia, Atlanta, Baltimore, Memphis and it’s first international destination, Haiti. ABC, CNN, MSNBC, Chicago Tribune and more have recognized the program in the past.  For more information, visit the following links:  www.howard.edu/asb/2014/ or Tumblr or  Facebook
