About Our Chapter

The University of Iowa Chapter of STLF was founded by three students in 2007.  Our chapter has planned, organized, and facilitated the Pay It Forward Tour from Iowa in the past few years, and is currently preparing for our tenth year on campus.  We are also dedicated to participating in various service projects and other local initiatives on campus and around the greater Iowa City community throughout the year.  If you have an idea to make a difference at UI, don't hesitate to contact us!

We are currently planning our 11th Pay It Forward Tour in March 2018. This upcoming Spring Break, our destination city will be San Antonio Texas! We will be visiting 5 cities on our way to Texas, so stay tuned for more information!

Pay it Forward Tours

Pay It Forward Tours are a 9-day long service-based road trip during Spring Break. It is our biggest event of the year! Past destinations have included Penascola, FL, Nashville, TN, Charleston, SC, and more. For each Pay It Forward Tour, we travel by coach bus to 5 cities plus a celebration city. A typical day on a Pay It Forward tour consists of participating in a morning service project, driving to the next destination, eating dinner and exploring the city, and last, but not least, engaging in some nighttime activities at our housing. In the celebration city, we will meet and get to know buses from other STLF chapters and complete a huge service project together. Afterwards, you will get the opportunity to explore our beautiful destination city with your new friends. It's a great way to spend your spring break, if you want to volunteer, see the country, make new friends, or simply have an adventure!

The cost of this year's Pay It Forward Tour is $525. The total cost includes lodging for 9 nights (including a hotel for 2 nights), transportation to 6 different cities, 2 meals a day, 2-tshirts, and the experience of a lifetime. If you sign up before December 1st, you can save $30, reducing the price to $495. You can save $15 off the total cost by registering before January 1st.
