Alternative Service Experience: Local

Local ASEs allows students to visit and impact local communities in a one or two day service program. They have all of the major components of an ASE including social issue education, service and reflection packed into a shorter experience. 

Continuing King's Legacy from our Spring 2020 MLK Challenge.


Civil Rights: Then and Now

Participants will travel to Greensboro, North Carolina on the weekend of February 8th and 9th to engage in service with Hope Academy, located in downtown Greensboro, which is a school geared towards community development through working with children who come from low income families. We will also visit the International Civil Rights Museum and see the movie Just Mercy. This ASE is first come first serve, and you can sign up now for $20 in the ACT office, room 134 in the student union. 

*Appalachian State University reserves the right to cancel or alter the program format or to change costs in case of conditions beyond the University’s control.
