Service Opportunities

El Salvador Service Trip

Are you interested in completing your junior Social Service Project while visiting El Salvador? Campus Ministry is offering a trip Monday, May 11–Thursday, May 21, 2020. A group of 10-15 Juniors will travel to San Salvador, El Salvador and complete all 90 service hours required for junior year. 

Students will participate in service projects such as playing with children and building new homes/clinics in a rural village of San Salvador. In addition, our group will visit incredible sites such as the University of Central America, Archbishop Oscar Romero’s home and chapel, and a small mountain at La Puerta del Diablo, just to name a few.

The cost is $2,000 per student to participate on this service immersion trip. If you are interested in learning more about this unique service experience, join Kevin Becvar for an informational meeting on Wednesday, October 9, at 5 pm in Room 104 before parent-teacher conferences.
