Go on a trip!
Trip selection begins mid-September. Applications are available online on the home page. Teams are formed based upon a balance among class, gender, volunteer experience and extracurricular activities. All team members are required to attend general ASB and team meetings. Specific guidelines are developed within each team to address issues such as fundraising distribution and attendance. However, each participant is required to contribute to the overall experience.
Get involved with our Executive Board or apply to be a Team Leader!
Applications for executive board positions will be available in November. Team leaders can apply in Spring 2017.
Each ASB trip has one to two faculty/staff participants. Faculty/staff participants are recruited based upon suggestions from student participant applications, past faculty/staff participants and the ASB Executive Board advisors. Faculty/staff are required to submit an application and are expected to be just another trip participant. All team members share responsibility for trip preparation, education, fund raising and organization. Faculty/Staff participants also serve as a Lafayette College representative in case of an emergency.
Participants are responsible for all costs associated with their trips. Budgets are developed in the fall covering transportation, food, housing and any agency fees. Participants attempt to fundraise all trip costs through numerous fundraising projects. In the event all trip expenses are not fundraised, participants pay for remaining expenses. Therefore, any nominal financial contribution makes a huge difference.
