The Alternative Spring Break program gives TWU students the opportunity to engage in service projects across the globe and impact the lives of those in need. Through partnerships with local organizations, TWU students immerse themselves with new cultures while doing hands-on volunteer work to improve local communities. These experiences challenge them to think critically and compassionately while taking meaningful actions to support a greater good. The skills, connections and growth the students make through the program are life changing and help further the mission of the University to truly be a Campus with a Heart. Trips are taken during TWU’s Spring Break period.
This ASB 2023 trip will be visiting Little Rock, Arkansas to focus on projects related to the interconnectedness of nature and sustainability. The main service project will be partnering with the Central Arkansas Master Naturalists to help with park upkeep at Pinnacle Mountain State Park and St. Joseph’s Center. Possible activities include Trail Repair, removing invasive species, planting native plants or any other maintenance of the park they may need help with.
