Flying H Ranch, Yakima, Wash.
This trip is located at the Flying H Ranch, located 30 miles west of Yakima, Wash. The ranch ministers to at-risk youth. On this trip, students will do physical labor as well as spend some time with the boys in worship, devotions, meals, games and conversation.
Urban Impact, Seattle
A team of students will serve with Urban Impact in Seattle, focusing on building relationships and serving in the community through the local church. The team will do a variety of work projects, which may include tutoring, service projects, administrative work and cleaning.
Mending Wings, Wash.
We will partner with Mending Wings, a nonprofit Native American youth organization located on the Yakama Reservation in Washington state. Students will come alongside the reservation community to build trust and friendship while serving alongside them painting homes, cleaning yards of garbage and debris, chopping wood for elders, mowing, weeding gardens, working at a homeless shelter, doing light construction projects, and perhaps working at one of their local powwows.
This trip will go to San Francisco to work with ReImagine, a center for integrating Christian practice. The week will consist of guided prayer tours, trash pick-up, serving meals to people living on the streets, learning about local issues such as human trafficking and poverty, as well as spending time in group and individual spiritual reflection.
Neah Bay, Wash.
On this trip, a team will travel to Neah Bay, Wash., to work on the Makah Indian Reservation. Service will include beach clean-up and assisting the elderly. Time will also be taken to learn about the culture and history of the Makah tribe and build relationships as volunteers work in the local community.
