Chicago Mission Trip
Who: Students going into high school Fall 2020
When: May 31 - June 5th
Where: Chicago inner-city in partnership with CMS Missions Organization
About our partners (CMS) in Chicago:
In Chicago, we work with over 30 partner sites all throughout the city. We have been working with most of our partners for over 10 years, but continue to do research on new relationships that we can develop as new ministries pop up in our city.
Our partners all work within a variety of realms in the city, which brings a lot of diversity to the serving experience for our volunteers. Some of those serving experiences include working with students & teachers in the Chicago Public School system, summer camps, working with those who are battling food insecurity at soup kitchens and food pantries, playing Bingo with senior citizens at low-income residences, working in urban gardens or with urban arts beautification programs, and working with refugees in English as a Second Language classes. Our volunteers get a wide variety of experiences while serving with us and get to meet many different types of people throughout their trip!
Our hope is that by providing a wide variety of service experiences, you & your team will get to meet many of our neighbors in the city to learn more about their lives, and the city, through the relationships you build.
