Due to increased interest in our project, we are excited to announce that we will be offering two service trips in 2019! Trips will be offered from January 9-16, and January 16-23, 2019. Participants can expect a full week of activities, morning and evening group reflections, and a site seeing day in Honduras. Each service trip will have a minimum of 12 and maximum of 16 people per trip.
Our Youth Ambassadors are scholarship recipients who help plan and facilitate the week long activities of the trip. Youth are chosen by the selection committee and must be between the ages of 18-29, living with HIV, live in the United States, and demonstrate exceptional leadership qualities. Scholarship recipients commit to further the mission of Youth Across Borders when they return to their home communities. Scholarships are available for the January 9-16 2019 service trip.
Our team members bring their unique talents and passion for serving people living with HIV on each trip. During the week, team members will conduct workshops or participate in on-site renovation projects. Team members are charged $1000 for the trip and are responsible for the cost of securing their airfare to the destination site.
