Honduras Service: Learning Opportunity for Youth and Young Adults

November 19, 2009

Sierra Service Project (SSP) is excited to announce the dates for the 2010 Honduras Service Project. Sierra Service Project, the United Methodist-affiliated youth ministry organization, is organizing four teams of high school juniors and seniors, and young adults, for a service-immersion experience in Honduras in 2010.

Trip dates are June 23-July 7, 2010 and July 14-28, 2010.
Participants will have the opportunity to be immersed in the culture and life of one of the poorest countries in the Americas and will work alongside Hondurans to build two simple, but safe and dry, homes. To date, SSP has constructed 28 homes in Honduras with plans to build eight more in 2010.
Open to mature high school juniors or seniors, and college-age young adults, this service experience is a great opportunity to meet other young people interested in social justice and service in Central America.
The trip cost is $1,700 if registered by December 31, 2009 ($1,800 after December 31). Cost includes airfare to and from Houston, Texas or Los Angeles, California, and includes all meals, lodging, and transportation within Honduras. A deposit of $400 ($500 after December 31) is required to hold your spot and airline seat.
