Inquire about the trip

The moment your group arrives in San Diego, youll feel the warm ocean breeze, but with this warm climate comes one of the highest homeless and street populations in the country. The beautiful homes that line the beach dont tell the whole story of those who struggle. Your group will be serving people of the Pittsburgh area from the poorest areas to the middle class neighborhoods that need your help.

What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Creating meaningful relationships

The moment your group arrives in San Diego, you’ll feel the warm ocean breeze and enjoy a laid back vibe. Every day is a nice day, and the beach, hills, and palm trees will make you want to stay for longer than a week. And with just miles between San Diego and the Mexico border, you’ll get a multicultural experience at every turn. 

Get into the action at South Mission Beach with sand volleyball, see the animals at SeaWorld, catch a Padres game, visit the beachfront Belmont Park and ride a roller coaster, or try your hand at simulated surfing before you face the real waves! 

But with this warm climate comes one of the highest homeless and street populations in the country. The beautiful homes that line the beach don’t tell the whole story of those who struggle. Something about the daily “sunny and 72” forecast makes people forget to help those who are in the greatest need. That is why San Diego needs you! 

Week of Hope changes lives—including yours…

Your teenagers will perform practical, meaningful acts of community service for some very special people. People whose lives you’ll touch…whose names you’ll learn. And, you’ll enjoy a personal, friendly setting of less than 100 participants…ideal for getting to know everyone.

You and your young people will partner with local churches, service agencies, and homeowners. And over the five days, your help will bolster the efforts of the ongoing work in these communities.

Your young people will make new friends, create new memories, and have a wonderful time together. Most importantly, your teenagers will discover that as they focus on the needs of others…they grow closer to Jesus.

We’ll take care of the details for you so you can concentrate on your teenagers. Your young people will learn new skills, serve in important roles, and have loads of fun as you assist the elderly…tutor struggling kids…conduct a backyard Bible club…serve at a food bank…staff an activities camp for disabled children…spruce up the grounds of a financially strapped social service agency…engage children at a day camp…and improve the community in other important ways. You’ll also serve other trip participants through meal preparation, cleanup, and maintaining the lodging facility.

And when the sun goes down, you and your young people will experience faith-building, interactive programs that include Scripture, worship, video, and drama. Programs are coordinated by a staff member, but you, your young people, and other participants will participate in other program elements.

Your mission trip will be run by four ministry-minded staff, including two highly-trained, college-age leaders.

Bring hope to a community next summer. Give your group the chance to grow closer to Jesus at a Week of Hope.
