Bulls Service Break

Bulls Service Breaks

The mission of the University of South Florida's Bulls Service Breaks (BSB) program is to raise awareness of social issues and injustices through education, service, and cultural exchange on the local, national and international level. The vision of the Bulls Service Breaks program is to provide educational service opportunities that create catalysts for positive social change.

Each trip is composed of experiential learning opportunities that are life changing and challenge students to be effective, ethical leaders who serve as engaged citizens for the global community. BSB is part of a national movement of active citizenship, striving to create sustainable change and fight social injustice in all communities. Each trip is rooted in Eight Components of a Quality Alternative Break and intentionally developed to provide strong direct service, orientation, education, training, reflection, reorientation, diversity and social justice, and full engagement.
