Spring Break Y-Trips

An opportunity for service and mission with your peers.

Spring Break Y-Trips build friendships while serving others in locations across the east coast and the south. The cost for students is $150 ($75 for the Local Y-Trip) with $50 of this being non-refundable in the case of dropping out. Payment in full secures your place on a trip. Some scholarships are available. Here’s the T-shirt design for this year (updated with 2015).
