The Alternative Spring Break program offers students the opportunity to travel during Spring Break and provide service to a different community. Each year, students apply and interview for one of 16 spots on the team. ASB provides these students valuable experience in teamwork and meaningful community engagement. Students learn about the climate and culture of the destination city during pre-trip meetings, and are responsible for planning trip activities and working together to solve problems.
Each team member is also responsible for fundraising a portion of the trip costs. Numerous fundraising opportunities are available.
Each year, the destination is kept under wraps until the team of 16 students are chosen. Previous destinations have included Hot Springs, Ark. (2013), Long Beach, Miss. (2012), Memphis, Tenn. (2011), and New Orleans, La. (2010).

The Office of Student Affairs Programs has built relationships with many local community agencies that utilize student volunteers. There is a great need in the Nacogdoches community for volunteers and SFA students are an integral part of fulfilling this need!
All of these agencies have volunteer opportunities available for SFA students and potential opportunities for service learning project partnerships.
