To support alternative spring break trip expenses
To support the 2017 trip to Atlanta to work with Habitat for Humanity
Honors Across State Borders (HASB) 2017 A Project of Ignite 2017
Alternative spring break trips provide students with the opportunity to serve a community in need during their spring break, to learn other communities in the United States, to form lasting friendships with their peers, and to represent their university. HASB (Honors Across State Borders) has organized alternative spring break trips for the last ten years focusing on service in communities with a need for low-income housing and providing students an opportunity to grow in their understanding of social issues from various perspectives. During spring break of 2017, HASB will travel to DeKalb County, GA to work on completing construction and repair projects on homes in the area. A donation to HASB is a two-fold donation, supporting volunteering efforts and providing an educational experience for a UConn student.
