Our Mission Statement

The Center for Honor, Leadership, and Service offers Alternative Service Breaks (ASB) to students as a civic engagement opportunity. ASB encourages community involvement and inspires personal growth through reflection. Students are challenged to think beyond themselves to gain a new perspective and to grow their appreciation for the impact of service.
