SPRINT: Seattle Pacific Reach-out International

SPRINT students

Student teams participating in Seattle Pacific Reach-out International, or SPRINT, work with Christian organizations in the host countries. While there, the student-led teams serve and learn through opportunities to engage with local initiatives led by congregations, community leaders, and educators.


Participants undergo extensive pre-trip preparation with training meetings, team-building activities, and a 2-credit course covering topics of theology, community development, and reconciliation.

SPRINT is facilitated by student leaders and operates under the guidance of John Perkins Center staff, who serve as advisors for student leaders.

Support SPRINT

Team members have begun their fundraising. You can support our SPRINTers for their life-changing experience by donating toward their trip costs. Donations are tax-deductible according to applicable tax laws.

For our SPU campus community, students participate in several fundraisers, giving faculty and staff the opportunity to support SPRINTers through their purchase of various items.


To learn more about the lasting impact on students returning from a trip, read “Impact on Reentry” in Response magazine.
