Alternative Service Experience: Local
ASE Local allows students to visit and impact local communities in a one-day service program. Local ASEs have all of the major components of an ASE including social issue education, service and reflection packed into a one-day experience.
Continuing King's Legacy
Participants will travel to Greensboro, North Carolina to serve alongside agencies in the area that work to continue Martin Luther King Jr.'s vision and work, as well as visiting the International Civil Rights Museum. Greensboro is a city that is known for its rich history in the civil rights movement. Participants will delve into the history of civil rights, especially locally in North Carolina, and discuss the current day struggles that persist.
The participants of this Local ASE will have the opportunity to work alongside Peacehaven Community Farm. Peacehaven Community Farm is a sustainable farm located on 89 acres of organic gardens, rolling pastures, and lush woodlands that connects people with special needs to their community. Their core values are community, relationships, and growth, which are achieved by connecting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to the larger community. This is done through shared living and the work of a sustainable farm.
