Date: June 27-July 1
Who is eligible?
Mature students who have completed their freshman, sophomore, or junior year, who aren't afraid of hard work and want to know what Hartford is really like. Students who have participated in this trip before are not eligible.
What is this trip about?
This trip gives students a cross-cultural experience that is only 20 minutes away. Life in the urban environment of Hartford is very different from what most of the students from the Farmington Valley are used to. Students will broaden their worldview as they learn about city life and engage with those who live in poverty. Much of this life-changing trip is devoted to serving as we come alongside North End ministries like Hartford City Mission and the Keney Park Sustainability Project.
Where do we stay?
Trip leaders Rebecca Wilhite and Mary Swank open their homes for this trip each year. The Swank home serves as home base for meals and team activities, and is where the girls will sleep. The guys sleep at the Wilhite home.
I want to go; what do I do?
Please note that the trip is limited to 18 students. Students must be committed to the team for the duration of the trip.
Registration will open soon!
