Build America

Learn new skills, see the country, build yourself, leave a lasting impact for people with disabilities. A team of 25 men cross the country over six weeks, spending their weeks building accessible amenities at camps and spending their evenings bonding with their team and the residents who benefit from their work. Weekends are spent exploring some of the most iconic cities and sites America has to offer.

Gear Up Florida

Kick off your summer with a two week trip that covers 800 miles from Miami to Tallahassee. The 35 man team cycles from city to city participating in friendship visits where men of Pi Kappa Phi and people with disabilities celebrate the abilities of all people. Whether challenging yourself as a cyclist or lead the program through a crew position, this is a great program to explore servant leadership on a national level.

Journey of Hope

Push yourself further than you ever thought possible with a cross-country cycling trip serving people with disabilities. Three teams cycle an average of 75 miles each day, participating in friendship visits where men of Pi Kappa Phi and people with disabilities celebrate the abilities of all people with each stop. Whether challenging yourself as a cyclist or leading through a crew position, this is a great program to explore servant leadership from coast to coast.
