What are Spartan Service Trips?

UNCG’s Spartan Service Trips are immersive service experiences in regional domestic communities. Organized and led by trained student leaders, service trips involve meaningful service, educational opportunities, reflection, fellowship with UNCG students, and fun!

How can you sign up for a Spartan Service Trip?

Sign up for the UNCG Spartan Service Trip Program by completing an online application.

Once you have completed the online application, you must bring a deposit to Amanda Davis to secure your spot. You can find Amanda in OLSL Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays 9am-3pm.

What commitments and expectations do participants have?

  • No previous service or leadership experience is necessary, however the ideal participant has a passion for social change.
  • Participants will serve as active members of the Service Trip Program and are required to attend all pre-trip meetings (dates and times set by individual trip leaders) and the post-trip Reunion event on Thursday, April 12.
  • For a weekend trip: Participants are required to pay a non-refundable $30 fee
  • For a week-long trip: Participants are required to pay a non-refundable $50 deposit and $100 fee
    • This payment covers food, housing, and transportation for the week/weekend. Cash (exact change needed) and checks will be accepted. Checks can be made out to UNCG – OLSL.
  • The trips are designed to provide opportunities for students to engage in their community. Therefore, each student participant is expected to be open to developing new relationships with peers and mentors as they learn together in the shared experience.
  • Participants are expected to maintain communication with their trip leaders and OLSL.
  • All students and staff/faculty will pledge to an alcohol and drug free experience on all alternative break trips, including pre- and post-trip events.

 

2017-2018 Spartan Service Trips will be announced soon.
