Pay It Forward Tour

The Pay It Forward Tour is a 9-day community service trip in which students from campuses across the nation will travel to different communities and perform community service projects. The University of Minnesota is sending out six buses of students to three celebration cities: Washington, D.C., New Orleans, and Dallas.

The tour is packed with travel and community service as participants complete 5 service projects in 5 different communities. Then students arrive in their celebration city, where they meet up with other buses and eventually complete one huge service project. The Pay It Forward Tour also includes team building and reflection exercises, which hopefully allow participants to get to know the people on their bus a lot better and truly appreciate the impact of going on a trip like this.
