Service Trips give you the opportunity to serve where genuine need exists in another area of our country. You'll gain first-hand perspective of the rich cultural diversity of our country and its people while building relationships with fellow volunteers and people at the service site. Service trips open your eyes and expand your horizons, giving you a new perspective to bring home. 

**Become a Service Trip Leader**

Service Trip Leaders are critical.  Mount Mercy University Alternative Break trip leaders have many titles including leader, follower, financial manager, educator, fundraiser, and supervisor.  A trip leader finalizes the project details with community organizations, sets group itineraries, helps lead reflection, and much more.  This is a valuable leadership opportunity for any student looking to gain a meaningful experience while addressing societal needs and making real connections between academics and lived experiences.  To lead a trip, fill out the following application.
