A number of years ago we began to transition from your standard "youth mission trip" to a more cohesive model - an intergenerational trip that built community as well as provided great opportunities for different perspectives and skills to be present on our teams. While the work and partners are chosen because of the ability to utilize the gifts and energy of our youth, all ages are welcome and participate in some way. Often, there are the work crews who go out on job sites, a cook team who helps to prepare nutritious and sustaining meals, and others, depending on what skills they have. We partner together to take care of our spaces, have fun, build relationships, and be the hands and feet of Christ wherever we are.
