Alternative Service Breaks

Through the Center for Community Outreach, the national service organization Break Away, and in collaboration with UK Education Abroad, the University of Kentucky Alternative Service Breaks program connects students with service projects in communities beyond the borders of Lexington and Kentucky. Alternative Service Breaks (ASB) aim to provide service experiences that are educational and cultural, and that promote active citizenship among UK students, faculty and staff.

Alternative Service Breaks participants should choose the application that applies to them, depending on whether or not they are earning academic credit in conjunction with their program abroad.
