We know Elks scholars are dedicated to service. Now, you have the opportunity to come together in service with your Elks scholar peers. In 2019-20, the Elks National Foundation will offer three Elks Scholar Service Trips for up to 20 Elks scholars each in the summer, winter and spring. These trips will offer you the opportunity to learn about societal issues, serve those in need in the name of the Elks, and connect with your Elks Family from across the country.

Upcoming Elks Scholar Service Trips

The Winter Elks Scholar Service Trip will take place in San Diego January 5-11, 2020. We will serve the city through various organizations, engage in meaningful programming and reflect each night to help us process the week. We will also be connecting with Elks in Southern California. Follow our social media to stay updated on the trip!

Winter Trip

The Spring Elks Scholar Service Trip will take place in Wheeling, W.Va March 15-21, 2020.
