About the Journey

*Students will need a parent present to help complete the Releases portion of the application. A SEPARATE application is required for BOTH parent/guardian and student.


Through our partnership with La Casa de mi Padre, this team of Transit students and parents will head to El Salvador. Just north of the equator in Central America, it’s a land of abundant volcanoes, mountaintop views, black-sand beaches, and tropical flowers and forests. El Salvador is also the most densely populated country in Central America, where the cycle of broken families and extreme poverty is difficult to escape.

We’re excited to come alongside La Casa de mi Padre as they work to restore families by providing a loving family environment for some of the country’s most vulnerable children.  With three family homes on the property and a transition home in town, they’ve successfully created opportunities for children in need to experience love and acceptance in a traditional family environment.

We want to build a compassionate, high-energy team that’s ready to share the love of Christ with these local children and families. Some of the projects the team may tackle include painting, landscaping, cleaning, organizing, and any other needs the community may have. You’ll also have time to connect with the families that live on the property and hike through rural areas to visit and deliver meals to families in surrounding villages.

If you’re ready for a meaningful and purposeful experience and an opportunity to connect with, invest in, work alongside, and get to know these children and families, this is your chance!

Price listed is person. Please only apply for ONE student journey at a time.
