Service Projects

Want to help create safer and more inclusive colleges and universities across the United States? Join Campus Pride in their mission to develop, support and give “voice and action” in building future LGBTQ and ally student leaders. Participants will explore issues of privilege, discuss what it means to be an Ally, and learn about the state of higher education for LGBT+ people. Volunteers will assist with program development work, community outreach and education, as well as administrative tasks that support the Campus Pride Index.

2018 Experience

Is it cliché to say that this trip changed my life? Yes, but we were tested in many different ways. I have never experienced such a family type of environment with almost complete strangers. I can honestly say that we left with a sense of pride and accomplishment in our work and in ourselves.
