WHAT IS ASB?
ASB, or Alternative Spring Break, is a week-long program run by The University of Michigan’s School of Information that gives students the opportunity to engage in a service-oriented learning experience. While most students are working on their tans, those of us participating in spring break are connecting with non-profit, cultural, governmental, and K12 educational institutions while engaging in social impact projects. Overall, ASB helps to enhance the relationship between the University and the greater community.
WHAT'S MY ROLE?
As a student specializing in Preservation of Information and Archives & Records Management, I am looking forward to working with the Paley Center in New York City. While there, I will be engaged in helping to create and maintain a wide-ranging archive of information that includes television, radio, advertising and communications.
By participating in ASB I will:
- impact the community through service-oriented experiences!
- develop my professional skills by applying my scholastic concepts to the real world!
- build a foundation to become a socially-engaged information professional!
HOW DOES YOUR DONATION HELP?
Donating to ASB enables students like me an experience unlike most typical Spring Break vacations. Running a program like this costs money, not only to transport us to and from our cities but also to stay there. By helping to raise this money, it will ensure that programs like this one will thrive in the future, enabling students like me to continue to help the community during ASB and beyond!
Why you should donate:
- it's 100% tax deductible!
- you'll feel great about yourself!
- you make an impact on my life and the lives of other students participating, as well as the communities we will be working in!
That's why I'm asking you to give what you can, if you can.
Thank you so much for your time and I look forward to seeing your name in the scrolly-thing to the right!
