2020 Mexico (Monterrey) Browns Bridge InsideOut
About the Journey
Through our partnership with Back2Back Ministries, this student team will head to Monterrey, Mexico. It’s a resort city “off the beaten track” and is known for its breathtaking beaches, historic landmarks, and big-game fishing. It’s known mostly as a tourist destination, but in stark contrast, it also has a high rate of poverty.
We’re proud to partner with Back2Back Ministries, a nonprofit organization dedicated to loving and caring for orphans and vulnerable children. They work to meet the children’s spiritual, physical, educational, emotional, and social needs so that they might overcome the cycle of generational poverty.
This student team will help with a mix of projects to improve the physical living conditions in local children’s homes and maybe even in a local family’s home. You’ll spend time playing with the children and might even take them on a field trip for some extra fun!
children by sharing the love of Jesus and helping make their lives a little better is life-giving. It’s an experience that will have long-lasting effects. If you’re interested in taking this journey, apply now.
Please only apply for ONE student trip at a time.
New for 2020!
You're busy enough, so we're taking some things off your to-do list! We've reduced the number of forms you need to complete, simply by adding a few questions to the global(x) application. Students, if you are under the age of 18 and will be at the time of travel, you will need a parent present to help you complete this part of the application. Lastly, no more paper copies of your passport are needed, just upload it in your application or to your ServiceReef profile, and you're done!
global(x) is a part of North Point Ministries. global(x) provides meaningful journeys for teams to serve at-risk people in communities around the world. We want to help combine faith and service to help make life better for those in need.
