Group Mission Trips is the Leading Provider of Christian Youth Mission Trips.
In 1976, Colorado sustained a catastrophic flood. The following year, Thom Schultz, founder of Group Publishing, organized church youth groups from across the country to come to Colorado and help rebuild the homes and lives of the flood victims. More than 300 teenagers and their youth leaders, just like you, arrived in Colorado and worked on over 50 repair projects. As a result, Group Cares (formerly Group Workcamps Foundation) was established as the nonprofit partner of Group Publishing. Since then, over 300,000 mission trip participants have racked up more than 6 million volunteer hours serving people in need. Since that first event, one thing remains true: We strongly believe in providing opportunities for teenagers to grow closer to Jesus through serving others either in their own backyard or halfway across the globe.
Today, Group Mission Trips has grown and offers several unique multi-day mission trip experiences that take place in the spring, summer, and fall.
WEEK OF HOPE
Youth build friendships and meaningful connections while caring for children and the elderly. Through heartfelt experiences and acts of kindness, youth share the love of Jesus and bring hope to the lives they touch.
Teenagers learn Christ-like empathy and compassion as they meet the spiritual physical, and emotional needs of disadvantaged children, youth, and adults. Five days of service. A lifetime of rewards.
