There's Still Time to Sign up: Honduras Service Opportunity for Youth and Young Adults

April 22, 2009

There is still space available in Session One of Sierra Service Project's Honduras service experience. Since 2003, Sierra Service Project has sent groups to Honduras every year and built 21 homes in total. Volunteers work alongside Honduran families and community members to build two simple but safe, dry, and secure brick homes. This is a cultural immersion program which offers insight into one of the poorest countries in the Americas, to young people wishing to learn more about the area and to selflessly serve.


Project dates for Session One to Talanga are June 21-July 6. This trip will be led by Alan Cook, the director of Family Ministries and youth group leader at Central United Methodist Church in Stockton. Previously, Alan participated in a service trip to El Salvador and co-led a Southeast Asia mission experience while a student intern at Pacific School of Religion.


This service experience is open to mature youth and young adults. It is a great opportunity to meet other young people interested in social justice and service in Central America.


Participants must be high school juniors and seniors, or college-age young adults.


The trip cost - through April 30 only - is $1,995, which covers all expenses, including airfare from Los Angeles. Limited financial assistance is available.


The price of this trip will increase May 1 due to an increase in airfare.
