Like volunteering? How about traveling? What about meeting awesome people? Or, maybe you want to build leadership skills and learn something about yourself. If you've answered yes to one or all of those questions, then you've definitely come to the right place! 

For over 7 years MSU's chapter of STLF has been achieving the goals above and making a positive impact on communities throughout the US and the participants who go on them through Pay it Forward Tours! We've been to awesome places like:

  • Charleston, SC
  • Denver, CO
  • New Orleans, LA
  • Houston, TX
  • Pensacola, FL
  • and Washington D.C.!  

And the list keeps growing! This past spring break, we traveled to Pensacola, Florida following 4 unique routes! Along the way, participants got a chance to see a variety of different communities and social issues, and work to address them. They also were pushed to learn what it takes to be a leader, and were able to get close to an awesome group of people. So take a look at some of our videos, check out the four, unique routes, and feel free to send any questions our way by email (msu@stlf.net) or Facebook!

We hope to see you on a Pay it Forward Tour this Spring Break!
