Riverways Education Partnerships Literary Arts Alternative Spring Break Applications are Still Open! Pizza Social Next Week (11/23)

Riverways Education Partnerships Literacy Arts Alternative Spring Break applications are still open! Students involved in any field of study/major are encouraged to apply! 


Want to do something meaningful with your Spring Break? Spend yours providing mentorship and education at K-12 schools around Washington state! During Alternative Spring Break (ASB), you will learn from rural and tribal communities, team-teach, and grow.

ASB programs cultivate self-esteem and academic engagement among K-12 students, as well as expanding their sense of possibility for life after high school. UW students will find they have much to offer the program, and that they will gain a lot from the experience in return! All lodging, food, and transportation costs are covered by UW Riverways.

Literacy Arts ASB

Through Literacy Arts ASB, UW students have the opportunity to empower elementary school students in rural and tribal areas of Washington by helping them write and publish their own stories in a book. At the end of the week, these young students present their stories to the community. UW students have the rare opportunity to learn about life in a small community, forming impactful relationships.

Seminar: Tuesdays 4:30 – 5:50pm, I&S 2-4 credits – can be varied!

Priority Deadline I: 11:59 PM, November 19th FRIDAY!
