Leadership/outreach opportunity: Alternative Spring Break

It’s time to apply for Alternative Spring Break (ASB) – a chance for UW students to contribute to rural and tribal communities around Washington, have a cross-cultural, immersive exchange, and team-teach and mentor in K-12 settings!
We could not be more excited to advertise our two SCIENCE ASB programs (STEM and Environmental Science), flyers attached, which serve youth ages 10-18.
(If you are interested in Literacy ASB, applications will be out for that Monday Nov 13th!)
By building relationships and providing dynamic curriculum, Science ASB programs cultivate an interest in science, the self-esteem, and the leadership of the K-12 youth we work with.

Calling home the spirits of University of Washington student, staff, faculty, and alumni veterans of all generations.

There are over 1,800 current student veterans across our three campuses who currently call the University of Washington home, in addition to the countless alumni who have served.  For many who came to UW after military service, campus was not always a welcoming place to be a veteran.
