Elks Scholar Service Trips are back! This January, we're bringing together 12 scholars in Seattle to learn, serve, and connect in the Emerald City.
This year's winter service trip will take place in Seattle from January 4-8, 2022. Scholars will stay at a hostel in the heart of Seattle's International District. On the trip, scholars will get the opportunity to serve with various community organizations, explore the city, and meet local Elks. Each night, we will end with meaningful programming and reflection.
For the safety of our scholars and the populations we're serving, all scholars will be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination.
Want to go but can't afford it? Check out our fundraising page for advice on how to get the funds you need, then reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for a link to our Travel Fund application.
While we will prioritize scholars local to the Seattle area, we encourage all scholars to apply.
"This trip has been a great opportunity to be really involved and actually see what the Elks family is like for myself," said Lydia Chen, a 2015 MVS scholar who attended the Boston service trip. "It really extends beyond just simply giving out scholarship money, but really into this whole mission of connecting different students and connecting people in different communities for the greater good."
