Project Serve 2014

Project Serve is an exciting Pepperdine Spring Break tradition where teams of students serve in domestic and international locations. The trips are designed to help students better understand the needs of our world while challenging their comfort zones.

SPRING BREAK  2014 Catalog

In the past, our teams have completed a multitude of meaningful tasks ranging from recovery ministry in New Hampshire to teaching English in the Dominican Republic. There is a project to satisfy anyone's passion for service.

Our goal is to send out students who are ready and excited to serve with passion and flexibility. Should you choose to serve with Project Serve, your spring break will be a different kind of vacation, a vacation of service, growth, relationships, and memorable experiences. 

All our teams are composed of and led by students. Every team member plays a crucial role in the success of the project. Team members must be willing and able to operate in diverse environments, as well as actively contribute to their teams in the months leading up to the trip. More than any other qualification that we look for in applicants is a commitment to their team, to learning, and to working hard.

Each individual must raise his or her own funds for the trip. In order to achieve this goal, each team works together to develop fundraising strategies and events.  Though the dollar amount may seem large, more than half of all participants raise 25 to 100% of the required funds. 

Project Serve 2014 is in the  Spring Break at Pepperdine 2014 Catalog.
