About Bobcat Break

Student Volunteer Connection is very excited about your interest in our spring break trip! SVC’s Bobcat Break strives to move heart-felt volunteers toward becoming life-long active citizens in their own community. We do that by focusing on habitat issues that affect our world, country or community. A group of Texas State students travel during our Spring Break to perform service in a community that is living with a particular habitat problem. After the trip, we come back to campus and live out what we learned on our break so that we can make our own community a better place.

You can become involved by applying to be a participant. We are looking for students who want to make a difference in their world and have fun in the process. This is an awesome and unique opportunity to take an alcohol/drug free trip that will change your life. To be a participant, you must be in good standing with the University and be enrolled at least half-time (6 hours for undergraduates and 4 hours for graduates with a GPA of 2.25 or higher). A spot on the trip costs about $125 which includes housing, food, and transportation for the entire week of spring break.


This year Bobcat Break will be working with Habitat for Humanity in Santa Fe, New Mexico to build affordable housing and serve the community.
The group will travel together by van to and from Santa Fe. While there, we will not only spend time working with Habitat for Humanity but will also spend time bonding as a group and enjoying the sights, sounds, and culture of Santa Fe.
