Spring 2016 TaB Trips

A number of ASP students were able to participate in Willamette University's Spring Take-A-Break (TaB) trips. Take a Break (TaB) is a student-led alternative break program that places small groups of Willamette University students, staff, and faculty in communities across America to engage in community service and experiential learning. Established in 2001-2002, students from a myriad of backgrounds, majors and class years work in conjunction with Willamette staff and faculty advisors and volunteer and community agencies to focus on a wide variety of social issues such as literacy, poverty, racism, hunger, homelessness, HIV/AIDS and the environment.

This year, ASP students joined groups headed to Oakland and San Franciso, California, and Boise, Idaho. The photos were taken in studios/galleries where artists with development disabilities work and exhibit their art. (Check out Creative Growth-Oakland and Creativity Explored-San Francisco).  In Boise, students visited community gardens, swing sets, and had community meals, and farms that were sustainably fertilized with human poop.
