Service Learning forms a key part of ASB’s mission. ASB trips emphasize not only the service performed in other communities, but also the increased self-awareness that occurs through reflection and interactions with others.



Service Learning entails:

  • Reflecting on the nature of service and on the role of students in the communities both at their ASB sites and at home

  • Understanding worldviews that may challenge currently held ideas or beliefs

  • Increasing self-awareness through interactions with fellow participants and the culture and/or environment of the site


ASB integrates service learning into its trips through reflections that allow participants to discuss issues and experiences from their service and human interactions and through pre-trip and post-trip activities with site leaders to build a greater understanding of particular sites and of the service performed.
