Bulls Service Breaks

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.

Bulls Service Breaks provide 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.

These opportunities not only contribute to a deeper understanding of:

  • Social Issues
  • Diversity
  • Service
  • Community


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