2024 Summer Service Learning Experiences

Short-term service and learning experiences can have a big impact. All our service-learning
opportunities are designed to help students:

  • Discover where God is already at work in communities in need
  • Act as the hands and feet of Christ to share God’s love with the world
  • Learn that those who seem different are not very different at all
  • Practice putting others’ needs above their own desires
  • Lean on God to realize their ability to overcome new challenges

Each day, youth will serve with a different East Bay partner organization. Activities may include packing food boxes, sorting donated clothing, visiting a center for racial justice, assembling hygiene kits, planting, cleaning, serving at a resource center for people experiencing homelessness, visiting with senior citizens, or playing games with local children. Youth may earn up to 15 service hours.

High School SERVICE-LEARNING Trip – SALINAS & BORDER ANGELS – JULY 7-14 – $575

Registration for our high school service-learning trip in 2024 has closed.

For youth completing 9th-12th grades in spring 2024.

The Salinas valley provides a large portion of our food and is incredibly vital to our own sustainability. We will serve alongside non-profit justice-oriented local organizations such as schools, churches, food distribution centers, farming and environmental programs. There will be a mix of relational and physical service which may include planting, weeding, preparing & serving food, painting, assisting with children’s programs, & interacting with guests. We will share God’s love by assisting organizations that provide ongoing and critical support to the people of the Salinas valley. 

We will also visit the US/Mexico border with an organization called Border Angels. Youth and advisors will learn from immigration advocates and interact with people experiencing the impacts of border policies. Participants will travel into the desert with Border Angels to leave water and other supplies for people crossing the border. Youth may earn up to 35 service hours.

We will spend three days in Salinas and then drive down in rented vans to San Diego, staying through the rest of the trip!

For any questions or financial assistance, please contact Junha Kim junha@lopc.org or Keris Dahlkamp keris@lopc.org
