Student Leadership

Information and Application Process for Students Interested in Coordinating a Trip

Coordinating a Service & Justice Trip is one of the most rewarding and amazing leadership experience that Creighton offers. While you are responsible for the safety, logistics, and formation of your group, you are also in a unique position to accompany and challenge participants as they experience the world in a new way on a Service & Justice Trip. If you have previously been a participant on a Service & Justice Trip, you are eligible to apply for a coordinator position.

1. Apply Online

Leadership in the program is a significant time commitment where your attendance is expected at a number of events and meetings. While a conflict with training/formation does not automatically disqualify you from a position, since we have a finite number of coordinator spots, we’re going to prioritize selecting people who are able to complete all the required training.

If you are going to be studying abroad but would like to coordinate a Fall 2022 trip, please go through the application process now. You will have to attend some formation now, and will continue the remainder of your formation and training once you return to campus in Fall 2022.

Please fill out the online portion of the application and submit it by April 1, 2022. Please plan for 20-30 minutes as there are essays, and you are not able to save your application and return at a later time. If you begin the application, it may be submitted to us even if it is not complete, please plan to complete it in one sitting to avoid duplicate applications.

After completing your application, your application will be reviewed by student leaders (core team) and the program director. You may be offered an interview if you are selected to continue with the process. Interviews should take between 20 and 30 minutes. Interviews will be offered April 1, 4 and 5.

2. Complete the interview

  • The interview is an opportunity for Core Team to get to know you better. Because our main focus during the interview is your answers, we do not need you to dress up.
  • Anyone selected for coordinator formation will receive an email offer by the evening of April 9. Coordinator offers are contingent and require successful completion of the first two parts of the Coordinator Formation process.

3. Formation

  1. Coordinator Formation Spring Semester: Sunday April 10th 1-4 pm Day of Formation  
  2. Summer Content – The mixture of articles and videos can be engaged asynchronously anytime between the end of the school year and August 1.
  3. After August 1st coordinators that have successfully completed the leadership formation/training will be placed on trips for Fall 2022.

4. Payment (Fall Semester):

  1. The SCSJ will be accepting the full payment for trips when students return to campus in August. We accept cash, check or credit card in the office. Coordinator price for full week trips is $175 and for 5 day Omaha trips is $100. 
  • The value and average cost for Service & Justice Trips is more than $500 per person. We reduce the price for all through the generosity of donors who support SCSJ fundraising efforts.
  • We discount our trips for our student leaders and for students who have demonstrated financial need.
  • We encourage anyone interested to apply for need-based student scholarships. The priority deadline for scholarships is August 12, 2022. After that, scholarship applications will be processed on a rolling basis while funds allow. You can apply for a scholarship here.
  • Your Service & Justice Trips payment will be refundable for one week from the date of payment. Should you withdraw from the Service & Justice Trips program after that point, no portion of the payment is refundable because costs have been incurred on your behalf to prepare for the trips.
