STRiVE is a five-day immersive experiential learning program for undergraduate students held off-campus during Winter Break. STRiVE’s intensive and engaging curriculum supports participants in developing critical thinking, leadership, community engagement, and cultural organizing skills. For many participants, STRiVE is their first foray into campus involvement. Because of the way the experience prepares and positions them, many STRiVE participants assume UMBC leadership roles, including as Student Government Association officers, student organization leaders, Resident and Commuter Assistants, and Orientation Peer Advisors. STRiVE 2020 will take place from January 13-17, 2020. The application is due on Sunday, November 10th.

Alternative Spring Break (ASB) is a six-day immersive learning experience organized by the Center for Democracy and Civic Life. Center staff support undergraduate ASB group leaders in positioning participants to think critically about social issues in Baltimore and develop skills in problem solving, community building, and storytelling. Throughout the Spring Break week, group leaders and participants meet with and learn from community partners, government officials, and scholars to develop a sophisticated understanding of local resources and challenges and lay the groundwork for long-term collective civic action. Alternative Spring Break 2020 will take place from March 15-20, 2020. The application is due on Monday, November 25th.
