Alternative Spring Break

Hamilton's ASB program is a student-run organization that provides community service in New York State and throughout the southern United States.

In the spring of 2013, ASB offered ten trips for more than 100 students. Nine groups traveled south for week-long construction projects, direct service work with children, environmental service or work in an urban soup kitchen. One group traveled to Syracuse for a shorter, urban trip, getting to know the local area and helping Hamilton's neighbors.

ASB has now evolved into its own student organization with an executive board that runs the program with Hamilton's COOP. The students are housed in churches, camps and refugee centers.
