History
Our first ABP was held during the spring of 2010 with a small group of students volunteering with a local refugee resettlement agency. The host office on campus went through a lot of structural changes and was not able to host the ABP on it's own. In 2015, a partnership was created between the Center for Urban Connections, First Year Success, Student Activities and Student Government Assembly to host the new ABP. Our new ABP now offers multiple concurrent trips with a variety of community organizations. So far, all of our trips are local to the Denver Metro community. We are hoping to eventually expand our offerings to out-of-state and international experiences for our students.
