Buck-I SERV Travel Assistance

Help us sponsor 75 participant slots for alternative breaks with Buck-I-SERV!


Buck-I-SERV (Students Engaged in Responsible Volunteering) is the nation’s largest week-long alternative break program, allowing students the opportunity to travel, learn, and serve in communities different from their own. The program started with a single trip to New York City, and has expanded to over 80 trips a year to 21 states and 6 international locations. Students participating in Buck-I-SERV learn the importance of self reflection, social justice, active citizenship, and civic engagement while gaining new perspectives through working in diverse environments. Buck-I-SERV participants will also be meeting community needs, building on community assets, and forming relationships with community members. Buck-I-SERV participants bring their alternative break experiences back to campus to continue to develop active citizenship and explore social justice issues.



All Buck-I-SERV trips are funded through a variety of different means, including a trip fee paid by the students attending the trip. Though Buck-I-SERV is proud to boast some of the lowest trip fees nationally among alternative breaks programs, sometimes these fees can still be prohibitive to students being able to attend a trip. We believe every student should have the ability to go on a trip, regardless of financial means. That's why our goal for this campaign is to raise enough for 75 participant slots on Buck-I-SERV trips. With your help we can make this goal a reality!
