Impact Experience

Impact Experience (formerly Alternative Spring Break) offers all students at Western and its affiliates access to unique co-curricular opportunities to support community projects during the February Reading Week. Impact Experience is more than just a one-week experience--it is a program with leadership elements and workshops, combined with service and reflection.

We're excited to work with local and global partners to plan virtual experiences for the 2022 February Reading Week.
