Please join Gannon students traveling to Ruskin, FL and Detroit, MI for their Alternative Break Service Trip (ABST). Rather than spend their spring break as vacationers, these students have opted for a week of community service. During the ABST meet-n-greets in Detroit and Ruskin, Gannon students will be eager to hear about your Gannon and Villa Maria experiences while sharing their own experiences through the ABST program.
Dinner is provided free of charge.
Detroit, MI: Hosted by Gannon alumnus, Joe Bione '75 and his wife, VMC alumna, Mary Bione '75VMC.

Alternative Break Service Trips
Through our Alternative Break Service Trip (ABST) program, student leaders design and facilitate experiences for their peers based on four pillars of service, simplicity, community and reflection. These immersions focus on broadening participants’ worldviews and fostering global citizenship, through service and relationship-building with neighbors across our human family. Rooted in Catholic Social Teaching, all ABSTs seek to create intentionally inclusive, diverse community through their group formation and trip experiences. ABSTs are co-curricular, student-led, and accompanied by trained faculty and staff from all divisions of the Gannon University family.
