Spring Service Break

Grand Canyon National Park

During TTU's Spring Break 2018!

Date of SB: March 10-18, 2018
Total Trip Fee: TBA (includes $50 application fee)
Application is closed.

CALUE's Spring 2018 Service Break is traveling back to Arizona to serve at the Grand Canyon. This was an amazing trip last year and we can't wait to take more TTU students to experience the Grand Canyon like never before! Accommodations are in the Grand Canyon and participants will be working very closely with various park employees to learn and serve in the park, specifically with Commercial Services! The Grand Canyon relies heavily on volunteers in order to keep the park running! This SB will allow TTU students to give back to one of our nations most important landmarks. Be ready to learn anything from conservation, special activities allowed in the park, the management of over 5 million guest per year, and the amazing history and culture of one of the seven wonders of the world!

Participants will be working mainly with parking services but believe me this is no easy task. Roving parking lots, answering the many questions of guests, and helping beautify the park will be just a few of the tasks.

Besides the work that we will be doing; we are also planning for lots of fun and exciting activities! Be prepared to go on hikes that are sure to have fantastic views!
