The RISD Alternative Spring Break Project believes in providing a platform for dialogue, reciprocity, and mutual respect within various communities. It creates a high level of immersion into a new community so that students are encouraged to explore and discover the various layers and connections that exist between them and society. The intensive nature of the program insures that students leave the experience with a new perspective on how their actions, work, and goals have a substantial impact on the community.
ASB 2015, which takes place in New York City and Baltimore, will explore the theme of domestic violence, collaborating closely with relevant non-profits and shelter. Through an intensive and rewarding 6-day interaction, ASB 2015 aims to provide an enriching service and cultural experience for its participants and partners, with a focus on the theme of domestic violence, its causes, and its overall impact.
By engaging student participants and leaders with the challenge of developing their own theme and schedule of projects we believe that the overall experience will be more enriching and allow for greater realization of their individual and team goals.
