Bulls Service Breaks

Started in 2001, the Bulls Service Break program provides a variety of low cost, week long and weekend service opportunities. There is no more powerful service experience than when students are fully immersed in new communities and social issues.

The mission of the University of South Florida's Bulls Service Breaks Program is to raise awareness of social issues and injustices through education and intensive service learning experiences. With the goal of promoting service and cultural exchange on the local, national and international level, students are immersed in communities that will bring to the forefront social awareness and inspire lifelong action and friendships.


These opportunities not only contribute to a deeper understanding of:

  • Social Issues
  • Diversity
  • Service
  • Community


...but are often the sparks which ignite people to get involved in community service.
