Travel, Learn and Serve During Your Spring Break

NVC and United Way have partnered to offer this amazing opportunity to NVC students.  For more than seven years, United Way has provided students with an opportunity to give back during their spring break. Through unique collaborations between United Way and partners like Deloitte, MTV and Participant Media, hundreds of students were able to volunteer through life-changing United Way Alternative Spring Breaks in 2013. Since its inception, over 2,500 students have traded in their swim suits for tool belts and participated in Alternative Spring Break in dozens of communities across the country, contributing more than 77,000 hours of volunteer service.  This year we are offering two trips.  Five students will be selected per location.


To be eligible for this trip, you must be a currently enrolled NVC student in good standing with the college.


The cost of the ASB program is $100 per student.  This fee is non-refundable.  See application for more details.

2014 Trips

Environment and Children - Middle Tennessee - March 10-14

United Way of Williamson County is hosting the first United Way ASB in Tennessee. Volunteers have long served as an essential and critical resource for Barefoot Republic Camp which has served thousands of students over the past 14 years. Volunteers and enabled Barefoot to maintain and improve facilities and programs for our campers. Typically projects center around 3 areas: landscaping, painting and/or construction. Beyond facility improvements, volunteers will work with children, many from low-income households.


Affordable Housing -  El Paso, TX - March 9 - 15

El Paso, with its friendly, welcoming people, is ranked as the safest city in the United States, yet also is home to some of the poorest ZIP codes in the country where 25 percent of the country's population of 800,000 people lives below the federal poverty level. Many are in living in sub-standard housing conditions. College students locally and across the country are invited by the United Way of El Paso County to roll up their sleeves and participate in creating meaningful change in the lives of deserving families during the fourth United Way ASB: El Paso. During the Alternative Spring Break program, participants will work with the Lower Valley housing corporation to help build homes for low-income El Paso families
