Get Involved/Mississippi Program

Students, guardians, schools, and communities are proud to partner with Students Today Leaders Forever to bring their quality service and leadership programs to the Magnolia state.

Mississippi Pay It Forward Tour participantsMississippi students have proudly been participating in Pay It Forward Tours since 2009. Across the country, students typically pay hundreds of dollars to participate on the Pay It Forward Tour. This sort of fee makes the Tour inaccessible to many students of Mississippi, so the Mississippi Pay It Forward Tour program relies on the generosity of donors like you to make the program possible. Because of generous donors nationwide, students in Mississippi do not pay a single cent to participate in the Pay It Forward Tour program.

The trip is especially impactful for Mississippi students who

sometimes do not otherwise have service and leadership opportunities given geographic isolation and economic disparities. The trip provides invaluable access to community service projects, at least one college visit per trip, leadership development, teambuilding activities, reflection, tourism, and college leader role models. Ultimately, the trip exposes students to service, strengthens their leadership capacity, and builds a cohesive team of supporters so that students return to their home cities ready to create lasting change in their own hometowns!

Donations made to the Mississippi Pay It Forward Tour program will be used to help ensure students can participate in the program at no cost, and will also be used to establish reserves, a crucial step in ensuring the program’s sustainability. The Mississippi Pay It Forward Tour seeks to serve as an enduring institution in local communities.
