MiBreaks is designed to provide an opportunity for students to partake in meaningful community service learning experiences throughout Michigan. During each semester, students spend a weekend of service addressing a particular social, cultural, or environmental issue. All trips are issue based, meaning each trip is based around a specific topic in partnership with a university department. Through active engagement, critical reflection, and analysis, students will learn about the issue and community in which they serve. At the end, students will be energized to be active citizens in their own communities and have a deeper appreciation for the communities we serve.

Meet the Team

Joshua Cambri, Program Co-Chair

Hi! My name is Joshua Cambri and I'm a social work major with a minor in political science! I'm a sophomore who enjoys playing videogames and watching TV shows, but I joined ASB because I enjoy volunteering and helping others just as much. I want to make a difference with others and I look forward to working with everyone in ASB.
