Spring break is the perfect time of year to spend time serving in your community. Whether it's through a week-long service project or time spent volunteering at a local nonprofit, this is a great time to volunteer.
Need help deciding where to serve this spring break? Don't worry. We've got you covered. Check out these spring break service ideas:
Spring break is a great time to go on a mission trip. Local churches often have multi-day mission trips during spring break. You can visit a new city in the country or travel internationally. Be sure to confirm with your school that you can receive service credit for your mission trip.
Every city has many needs and many nonprofits that service those specific needs. Find a local nonprofit and dedicate your time to volunteering there over spring break. Visit your local government's website for nonprofits in your area or visit the National Directory of Charities and Nonprofits to find organizations in your area.
Your Own Service Project
Are you interested about a certain topic or passionate about a cause? Design your own service project. Connect with a local nonprofit or even a local individual or group and make your own service project. Be sure to get approval from your school prior to starting the service project.
