One moment please...
ASB 2018 Participant Application

Thank you for your interest in going on an Alternative Spring Break with Michigan Hillel! On this trip you'll create new friendships, volunteer for 25 hours, learn more about the community and service work we're doing, explore the city, and have a unique Shabbat experience! We are excited for you to join us on this service-learning experience. 

We are offering two trips this year:

Detroit, MI will focus on education justice and food justice with Repair the World. The expected cost of the trip is $250.

Houston, TX will focus on Hurricane Harvey relief with organizations currently on the ground. The expected cost of the trip is $550.

We hope to lower the price through different fundraising opportunities. 

If you have any questions, please reach out to Rebecca, our social justice fellow, at grbinich@umich.edu

We are looking forward to learning and working more with you soon!

Sincerely,

ASB Student Leaders
