CSI // ALTERNATIVE SPRING BREAK
The EOU Alternative Spring Break Program (ASB), sponsored by the National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS), is an excellent opportunity for students to give back to the community while learning about different people, cultures, and customs. This program gives students an opportunity to make a meaningful impact in the lives of others while growing as individuals themselves. ASB allows students to participate in a unique and memorable experience during their spring break.
EOU ASB History:
2014: Students joined Youth for Christ (La Grande) to participate in a week-long mission trip to San Luis, Mexico. While there, participants helped build four houses for families.
2013: Students returned to Portland for another weekend with JOIN. Students got to not only “walk in someone else’s shoes,” but also give back to the community through volunteering similar to the year before.
2012: Students participated in a 2-day immersion program (associated with JOIN in Portland), which exists to support the efforts of homeless people to transition off streets and into permanent housing. Students on this trip volunteered time at one of many agencies located in Portland, visited homeless camps, and shared a dinner with homeless individuals.
