As ASB entered the 2015-2016 academic year, the Executive Board focused on expanding ASB into new locations in the United States and within the Georgia Tech community. The ASB leadership realized that many students would like to participate in ASB trips, but may not have the time to commit to a full Institute break or may not have the financial resource for an international trip. Because of this, ASB created two new trips: one in Atlanta, GA during Fall Break 2015 and the other in Taos, New Mexico during Spring Break 2016. The Atlanta-based trip was a two-day, one night trip, which presented an abbreviated model along with a new partner (International Rescue Committee) and focus area (refugee family services). The trip to Taos, New Mexico partnered with the Taos Habitat for Humanity affiliate.
