Here's your opportunity to volunteer in one of the most beautiful places in Texas: Palo Duro Canyon! Volunteers will be staying at the Gilvin Center, a part of the park not usually open to the public. This pristine area of the park is absolutely stunning, and quite different from what most park visitors get to see. Service projects will help the park to conserve the precious natural and cultural resources of this special place so that we may hand it down to future generations in even better condition than it is in now.

Volunteers are vital in helping take care of our state parks and TTU Raider Service Breaks is excited to offer students, faculty, and staff an opportunity to Serve, Learn, and Travel at Palo Duro Canyon.

Service Breaks participants must be willing to learn, serve, step out of their comfort zones, be flexible, and have fun!

REFUNDS ARE ONLY GIVEN IF RAIDER SERIVCE BREAKS CANNOT ACCOMMODATE YOU ON THE TRIP OR IF THE RSB IS CANCELED.

Make the Most of Your Breaks!
