The Service Trip is a service immersion experience where participants will work to serve areas of need in the community. In the past, trip participants have worked to build a house with Habitat for Humanity, served a local children's program, rehabbed a community center, and visited a local CASA program. No matter what the work entails, each trip participant has developed as a leader.
Theta has partnered with the Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values (AFLV), an organization that provides experiences which challenge and encourage fraternity/sorority members to live ethical values and implement best practices, to provide this unique opportunity to exercise the widest influence for good and meet Thetas from all over North America.
The Service Trip is offered several times a year!
- Winter—Jan. 3-8, 2017, Vancouver. Open to undergraduate third-year/juniors and above.
- Alumnae—Feb. 16-20, 2017, New Orleans. Open to all alumnae.
- Summer—July 16-22, 2017, New Orleans. Open to all undergraduates.
Who should attend?
Aside from the specifications noted above, the trip is for Thetas seeking to learn more about the impact of service and how serving others can change and develop each as a person. It doesn't matter if you've attended service-learning experiences in the past or not—we are looking for Theta collegians, in good standing with the Fraternity, who are interested in making real and lasting change by spreading the widest influence for good.
For undergraduate trips, participants must have undergraduate status at the time of the trip. Similarly, for alumnae trips, participants must have alumnae status at the time of the trip. We give preference to registrants who are from different chapters as well as to members of chapters that have never been on the trip before.
The interest in Theta's service trips is truly inspiring! Please understand that it isn't possible for all applicants to participate in a trip; please also understand that early registration is not a guarantee of participation.What is the cost to attend?
Due to a generous grant from Theta Foundation, participants for the 2017 trips will only need to pay $75, as registration and travel cost is covered by the Theta Foundation grant.When do I need to apply?
Please do not make any travel arrangements until your trip application is confirmed and you have been instructed to do so.
- Summer: Online application will begin at noon Eastern on May 9 and close May 10.
