College Pay It Forward Tour

Are you looking for a spring break adventure that you will never forget? The Pay It Forward Tour is a great opportunity to see the country, serve, and spend time with a group of incredible people. This year, students on thirty-four campuses are planning and preparing for Pay It Forward Tours from their schools over their spring break.  Close to 2,000 college students will serve in 250 communities on a Tour.  Students from any school can sign up for any trip. Get Excited!

What is a typical day on the College Tour?

College Pay It Forward Tours are 9 days-long, with service projects in 6 cities.  Buses leave from one campus and travel to 5 different cities—a different city and service project each day.  The last city is the celebration city, or the Tour’s end destination.  For weeks with multiple Tours, the celebration city is the first time the buses unite.  It is amazing to see hundreds of young people in the same color shirt doing one massive, joint service project.  A standard day includes:

  • Service Project in the Morning
  • Lunch with the Community Served
  • Bus Travel in the Afternoon to Next City
  • Potential Tourism in City
  • Evening Activities and Reflection
  • Spend the Night (with the exception of the celebration city which are spent in a hotel, participants sleep in gyms, community centers, churches, etc)
