South Elgin High School Pay It Forward Tour Information:

All STLF High School Pay It Forward Tours visit four cities over the course of five days.  We will carry out a service project in each of those communities visited, work with a variety of organizations, and visit one or two college campuses.  Through evening activities and reflection, the Tour is an opportunity to build meaningful relationships and learn about issues affecting communities across the country and your own.  Each High School Pay It Forward Tour consists of up to 40 high school students and five to seven college student and adult leaders.

South Elgin High School Tour Routes

Participants will be placed on buses based on their friend that they request during the registration process. Both people must request each other in order to be placed on the same bus. Exact bus placements will be communicated within one month of the tour's departure. 

There will be 6 buses from South Elgin High School. The routes are listed below and will also be listed on the registration. The buses will be staying at a YMCA Camp in Nashvhville, TN. STLF has stayed at this camp for multiple College and High School Celebration Cities, we love the cabin spaces that also have showers in them as well as their main meeting center where we host meals and the celebration itself.
