Alternative Spring Breakers Wanted
The Center of Community Action and Research’s Alternative Spring Break programming has been making an impact for 15 years strong. Here’s how you can get involved.
Want to do good this spring break? For 15 years, the Center of Community Action and Research’s Alternative Spring Break has helped countless individuals in a series of efforts to rebuild and revitalize communities, and this year volunteers will gather to rebuild the Rockaways. This year’s ASB will be a continuation of the past three years, with volunteers working on post-disaster recovery to help fellow New Yorkers who are still struggling to rebuild after the devastating impacts of Hurricane Sandy.
Each year, 16 students from Pace University’s New York City and Pleasantville campuses are selected to participate. Past ASB initiatives have included rebuilding in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, tackling poverty in New York City, and venturing out to the Rockaways to rebuild homes following the devastation left by Superstorm Sandy.
Interested? To start, attend one of these mandatory information sessions:
Thursday, February 2 (NYC and PLV)
Civic E319 (NYC), Miller Hall 16 (PLV)
Wednesday, February 8 (PLV)
163 William Street, Room 1520 (NYC), Dyson 218 (PLV)
ASB Trip Dates
Monday, March 13–Thursday, March 16
After attending an information session, prospective participants are invited to fill out an application. Although participation can be competitive, the Center for Community Action and Research welcomes any student interested in making a difference to apply. Again, students must attend one information session in order to apply.
