Welcome to MSU STLF!

Paying it forward 45 Spartans, 9 Days, 6 Cities, and 1 Bus at a time.

Like volunteering? How about inexpensive travel? What about meeting new people? Or are you looking to expand your resume with leadership experience

If you've answered yes to any of those questions, then you've definitely come to the right place! You'll be a perfect fit for MSU's 8th annual round of Pay it Forward Tours!

You might ask yourself, "what's a Pay it Forward Tour?!" and we're more than happy to answer! A Pay it Forward (PIF) Tour is not your typical spring break trip. It's a volunteer spring break trip that travels to 6 different cities in the U.S. over 9 days.

More than that though, over the course of the trip participants are led by a core of around 5 fellow students and are  given a chance to volunteer for a variety of worthy causes, explore a new and exciting environment, build their leadership abilities, and meet a group of 40-45 other students passionate about making a difference in the world. 

This year our chapter is sending 5 PIF tours to Washington, D.C.! Each bus will follow a different route, volunteering in and exploring five different cities along the way. Some of the routes will be stopping in awesome cities like Charleston, SCNew York City, NY, Philadelphia, PA, Charlotte, NC, and Boston, MA! Additionally, if you have friends at other universities, they're welcome to join us if they share the same spring break!

What are you waiting for? Your Spring Break Adventure Starts Here

We hope to Pay it Forward with you this Spring Break!
