MEXICO SERVICE TRIP

Mexico Trip.jpg
Look at these handsome people in Mexico!

Our Annual Mexico Trip is one of the best events of the year. Don't miss this opportunity to serve a needy community and experience a life-changing adventure!

This year we will be working with Vida Joven (Young Life) in Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point). Their organization not only works with local teenagers, but operates medical & dental clinics, offers daily meals to locals in need, has a library, and offers other services for neighborhood kids and families. This is a holistic community center and we get to join them in some ongoing projects.

A WORD ON SAFETY: Young Life has been doing this trip for 13 years and we've never had a sketchy incident. We always travel as a group and stay with local guides while in Rocky Point. We sleep at a secure, locked and gated compound. No place is ever perfectly safe without crime, but we've never had a problem down there.
