Trevecca Around the Globe
Trevecca Around the Globe (TAG) is an annual opportunity for Trevecca students to catch a vision of God at work in our world and to take part in the redemptive story that God is writing across all of creation. With trips during both spring and summer breaks, TAG provides young adults with meaningful and transformative service-learning experiences.
Service-learning is a form of experiential learning where students develop knowledge and critical thinking skills while addressing genuine community needs. TAG presents Trevecca students with service-learning trips that will grow the student's understanding of our God, our neighbors and our engagement with the world as Christ-followers.
