ASB strives to move heart-felt volunteers toward becoming life-long active citizens within their own community. We do that by focusing on social injustices that affect our communities. ASB groups travel out-of-state during our Spring Break to perform service in a community that is dealing with a particular social problem.

We also want to ensure that each grade school student is reading at or above grade level. Many of these children have never held a children's book. Children only attend school for half a day each day; it's difficult for teachers to focus sufficient time on reading. Spanish majors/minors can make a tremendous impact through literacy education.
