The much anticipated summer service trips are finalized and registration is open. Here is the information for all three trips YES is offering for 2018.
Clendenin, West Virginia June 3-9, 2018
This mission is open to high school youth (rising 9th graders with youth minister or clergy recommendation, new high school graduates are welcome). We will be doing recovery work from floods that hit this already struggling town in 2016. We are excited to be working with Next Step Ministries this year, as part of their model of long-term community development supported by short-term service travelers like us.
This service experience is budgeted at $799 per traveler (including adults). A deposit of $100 is due at registration.
Denver JUICE (Justice: Urban Immersive Cooperative Experience) July 22-27, 2018
Our metro area churches are proud and excited to invite all middle and high school youth (rising 6th graders with youth minister or clergy recommendation) to our capital to learn about poverty, homelessness, and injustice in our city. This experience will combine service and outreach with education and advocacy, and the YES leadership team is very excited to bring it to Episcopal Youth in Colorado.
This trip is budgeted at $199 per youth (adult leaders are covered in the cost of the trip). A deposit of $50 is due with registration.
El Hogar Ministries, Tegucigalpa, Honduras, July 6-15, 2018
This transformative visit to a remarkable home and school, which is saving and enriching the lives of children in Honduras’ capital city, is for young adults who have graduated high school and have participated in YES trips as middle and high school youth.
This experience has a cost of $1500 per traveler, plus participation in fundraising a $2500 group fee.
Contact me as soon as possible if you plan on attending one or more of the trips so we can start the registration process!
How can you be involved?
We will need adult volunteers to accompany us on both the trip to Virginia as well as to Denver (all of your trip costs will be covered by YES). Please contact me if you are interested in joining us on either of these wonderful trips.
You can also be involved by donating towards scholarships for our youth to attend these trips at a lower cost to their families.
