Alaska Mission Trip

Does your high school student want to give their time and talents to make a big impact in someone else’s life? Then, join Hillside Students for a High School Mission Experience in Anchorage, Alaska, June 3-10, 2018.

Where is the trip?
Anchorage, Alaska

Who can go?

The trip is open to high school students who have finished their Freshman year through graduating Seniors.

What happens on the trip?
Projects (tentative):
- Serve those in need in the community.
- Serve healthy meals to hungry kids in disadvantaged communities.
- Backyard Bible School, sports, crafts, music, and games with the community children and youth.
- In the evenings at these locations, we do evangelistic park parties. This gives us an opportunity to connect with the adults in the community. We set up a bouncy house, cook hot dogs, play music, and host games and sports. It creates a wonderful and relaxed environment for personal evangelism.

Why should I send my student on this mission trip?
We believe in mission trips. We believe that sharing the love of Christ with others is important. This mission trip will allow your student to have fun, build relationships, and share the love of Jesus with people living in Anchorage.

How are the students traveling to Alaska?
We will be flying into Anchorage. Further travel details will be communicated at a later time.

Will my student be safe?
Safety is one of our highest values. We have incredible leaders and volunteers who love your kids. Students will never be alone and will always be in a group with adults!

Can I raise funds for the trip?
Yes, we will provide your student with resources to help them write and send out a fundraising letter.
