WHERE
Monterrey, MX
COST
$2,000.00

You have an opportunity to help break the spiritual and physical cycle of poverty with orphans and vulnerable children by serving Back2Back. Back2Back meets the spiritual, physical, educational, emotional, and social needs of children through local partnerships.

Middle school students are hyper-aware of their surroundings and culture. While this natural focus helps them develop their definition of the adults they are becoming, it causes many people to accuse them of being “selfish” or “living in a bubble.” Therefore, we encourage parents to take their middle schoolers on a different type of adventure after they finish 7th grade: a mission trip. It is eye-opening for students to see people living in different cultural contexts, dealing with different sets of challenges. We believe that giving parents and students an opportunity to serve together is the most powerful way for them to grow and discover a faith of their own.

We are looking for students who are in 7th grade (during the 2018-2019 school year), who are actively involved in Transit, and who can each be accompanied by one of their parents (26 people maximum). Fluent Spanish speakers are great assets, but English-speaking staff are also available to help translate.

**Note that the cost of the trip listed is the cost PER PERSON.
