Your student needs your help to prepare for this trip. Get them to meetings. Keep them accountable for fundraising. Pray with them. We will send regular emails to keep you in the loop about what is coming and how you can support your student.
We work with a ministry called Cutting Edge, which connects us with local churches and outreach ministries throughout Dallas. Students will be in small teams of 15-30 and work directly with those ministries. Each team may participate in various things throughout the week like community outreach, work projects, kids day camps, and food and clothing distribution.
After the info meeting, there will be monthly meetings with your campus team to talk about fundraising, trip logistics, spiritual preparedness, and team building. We will send out a detailed calendar of these meetings on Feb. 1 when applications are due, but for now, pencil in these dates: Feb. 16, Mar. 15, Apr. 19, May 17.
We do our best to ensure that our students are safe while serving in Dallas. Each church and organization that we serve with is vetted and asked to always have a representative with us when we are out in the community. Our facilities at our host site are locked and secure. We do our best to always maintain a safe adult to student ratio throughout the week.
There are a lot of things to know about fundraising. Check out some of the guidelines below to help get you on your way.
The $150 deposit is refundable until Feb. 1, 2020.
