Michigan State University

Welcome!

Like volunteering? How about inexpensive traveling? What about meeting new people? Looking to build your resume with leadership experience? If you've answered yes to any of those questions, then you've definitely come to the right place! 

For over 8 years, MSU's chapter of the larger nonprofit organization STLF has been making an impact in great american cities 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.

This year we're going above and beyond with 5 BUSES heading to Washington, D.C.! Each bus follows a different route, visiting and volunteering in five different cities along the way, with some of the routes stopping in awesome cities like Charleston, SCNew York City, NY, Philadelphia, PA, Charlotte, NC, and Boston, MA.  So take a look at some of our videos, check out the five, unique routes, by clicking the links under "bus routes"below 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!

Sincerely,

MSU STLF Chapter Core

GO GREEN!

The past years have been great and we want to make this year even better! In addition to the Pay It Forward Tour over spring break, we will also plan various service projects and other local initiatives on campus and around the community throughout the year.  If you have an idea to make a difference on campus, STLF is a great group of people to help make it a reality!
