Bus Day 2 {Spring 2014}

Washington, D.C. is a diverse and multi-faceted city.  Through ASP’s Neighborhood Engagement program, each ASP student gains a comparable amount of exposure to the people and cultures of both federal Washington and the neighborhoods of D.C. The shared objective is to hold as many conversations as possible with residents of different neighborhoods. The shared goal is to learn more about the different ways in which power and poverty reside side-by-side in this city and what this means for our understanding of leadership and vocation.  One of the ways that students participate in Neighborhood Engagement is through “Bus Days”–organized city excursions whereby students (in groups of four to six) discover the less explored features and history of different D.C. neighborhoods.  To read more about the Neighborhood Engagement program, please click here.

In March, ASP students teamed up with their Washington Journalism Center classmates and spent a Saturday in five different neighborhoods of the District.  Browse their presentations to learn more about DC’s vibrant neighborhood life.
