Alternative Intercultural Service Break

Alternative Intercultural Service Break

The Alternative Intercultural Service Break (AISB) program is a unique experience for both international and domestic NC State students to spend their break participating in activities, making new friends and engaging in service projects in a local community. Throughout the trip, team members participate in a variety of cultural, educational, recreational and reflective activities.
