APPLES 2018 Alternative Spring Break applications
October 16 - November 6$90
APPLES Alternative Spring Break (ASB) program takes place in the spring semester through both classroom interaction and an immersive experience for eight days during spring break in March.
The learning begins before spring break as participants attend classroom sessions designed to prepare them to engage in discussion and service centered on their chosen focus area. In this two-credit hour, pass/fail course (HBEH 610), students examine theories behind community service, coalition building, community asset development as well as specific needs and assets of the communities where they volunteer. This is a mandatory course meeting weekly for a total of two hours (one hour of lecture and one hour of recitation). View a past syllabus for more information.
APPLES sponsors five ASB experiences on the following topics. When applying via the Carolina Center for Public Service Application and Nomination Portal, students may indicate their preference: Latinx communities, rural communities, urban communities, civil rights and disaster relief.
