2024 Spring Domestic Experiences

Students can plan to sign up for spring break ASE programs through a lottery process. The cost for participation in spring 2024 is $200. This includes lodging, meals, and transportation. The sign-up lottery for spring break 2024 has passed. We currently have two spots on the Youth Outreach program available, as of February 2nd. To express interest in an open spot or join the waitlist, please contact Elayna Coleman at [email protected] or visit the Community-Engaged Leadership Office (PSU 138)


A limited number of scholarships are available to support students interested in spring ASE programs. The scholarship deadline for spring break 2024 has now closed. Congratulations to our recipients!

Spring 2024 Programs
Seaside Sustainability

For a week, the Seaside Sustainability program will be giving back to the Earth by volunteering with the Nature Conservancy. We will be cleaning up and preserving the beautiful beaches as well as the animal habitats of Nags Head Woods Preserve! Nags Head Woods was designated a National Natural Landmark in 1974, and protecting its unique habitats was one of the Conservancy’s first priorities in North Carolina.

Peer Leaders: Ella Harris, Sherri Rajesh

The Elephant Sanctuary

Join us as we volunteer at the nations largest natural habitat refuge for retired elephants. We will be working to help paint walls, gather food, and other exciting hands-on services. You will get first-hand experience learning about captive and wild elephants!

Peer Leaders: Gabby Morgan, Kaitlyn Mills

Restoration & Exploration at the Coast

Come join us as we care for and explore a 66,306-acre wildlife refuge. This coastal park is part of the National Fish and Wildlife Service and encompasses a few of our crucial barrier islands. Our program allows students to be part of the work that goes into preserving wildlife refuges, which play a key role in our environment.

Peer Leaders: Dezirae Britton, Annel Idaly Ochoa

Youth Outreach

Work alongside Murphy-Harpst, an independent not-for-profit organization committed to meeting the needs of abused and neglected young people through residential treatment, placements in specialized foster care, and community programs that serve at-risk youth and their families. They're committed to servicing all children regardless of sex, race, color, or creed, and whose needs can be addressed and treated within the scope of program services.
