Moments from Stanford's Alternative Spring Breaks

Alternative Spring Breaks (ASB) are themed week-long student-led excursions that take place over spring break and seek to "transform students into advocates of social change," according to the ASB website. This photo gallery features photos from five different ASB programs. It is an accompaniment to the Daily article "Alternative Spring Break Trips provide meaningful experiences despite organizational challenges."

ASB students with workers and executive committee members of PAWIS (Pilipino Association of Workers and Immigrants). Students listened to a presentation on the Philippine Labor Export Policy (LEP) and engaged in a worker's panel, where Filipino workers shared their stories of struggle which opened a conversation on how to best engage the younger generation to fight against the systemic issues of governmental corruption and exploitation of migrant workers.

Stanford Pil ASB with members from Kabattan Alliance (KA) and Northern California Pilipinx American Student Alliance (NCPASA), both of which are regional and national alliances (respectively) of Filipino youth and student organizations dedicated to serving Filipino communities here and back home in the Philippines. Stanford's Pilipinx-American Student Union (PASU) is a member of both alliances, and students learned here how to best integrate their home organization with student networks at nearby universities.
