Alternative Spring Break

Sponsored by Community Engagement and Service, Linfield Alterantive Spring Break (ASB) is a week-long, service learning program during which students perform meaningful service in partnership with a nonprofit agency, learn about a specific social issue (poverty, the environment, or youth), and develop strong civic leadership skills to become active citizens. Check out the past ASB trips!

Do you have plans for spring break yet? Are you interested in helping alleviate a real social issue like poverty, childhood illiteracy, or habitat degredation? Do you like making lasting memories? Then sign up for Alternative Spring Break! March 20-26, 2016 there will be three Linfield trips addressing social need here, near, and far. The trips are thematic and headed to different locations:

  • Sustainability and Conservation in Ketchikan, Alaska: Join team Leader Adan Martinez and Assistant Leader Sara Gomez in a partnership with the US Forest Service where you will do conservation work, remove invasive species, and learn about sustainability in Southeast, Alaksa! 
  • Poverty and Homelessness in Tacoma, Washington: Under the Leadership of Kelly Ackerman and her Assistant Leader volunteers will be heading to a Habitat for Humanity work site situated approximately halfway between Seattle and Olympia. 
  • Youth Empowerment in Portland, Oregon: Leader Deizhannah Kaya-Abad and Assistant Leader Sam Beyer will be operating with a number of youth empowerment organizations in the Portland Metro area. Sevice may be indirect for example, helping repaint a local youth center or sprucing up a library reading nook.

This is a great opportunity to serve the global community and make some great friends along the way.
