Alternative Spring Break

Hello former ASBers, alumni and friends,

Welcome to the ASB alumni page. In 1987, a group of first-year students started Alternative Spring Break at Vanderbilt. Since then, the organization has grown exponentially. In 1991, the founders of Vanderbilt ASB created Break Away, an alternative break resource center based in Atlanta. Since that time, alternative breaks have continued to grow at college campuses and other service-minded institutions throughout the country.

We are an alumni wing to support the current students at Vanderbilt, connect ASB alumni through our chapters and create a place where students and alumni can share and celebrate their experiences. We'd love to have our student ASBers visit alumni in their cities of service during spring break. Please join us in a chapter near you as we raise awareness of the work ASB students do in your cities during spring break.

Sponsor an ASBer

ASB has a unique way to give back to Vanderbilt. Join fellow ASBers in sponsoring an ASB student for their spring break. Each year, ASB makes an effort to provide every student chosen for a trip the opportunity to go on a service trip. We make every effort to give financial aid to each applicant, but as the number of applicants increases, the amount ASB can award decreases. Your gift to ASB will help make a trip affordable for a student. Student trips generally range from $200 to $800, but any amount helps.

Give now and in the comments section write in “Sponsor an ASBer” if you want your gift to ASB to go specifically toward offsetting the cost of a trip.
