Mission trips, service projects, Christian service learning – Sierra Service Project has provided opportunities for teenagers and young adults to grow their faith and serve others in meaningful ways for four decades. Each year, over 2,000 people take part in one of our week-long or weekend mission projects in low-income communities throughout the western United States. They do challenging community service work – mostly home repairs. They make friends, worship, learn about the people they serve, explore issues of social justice and inequality, and have fun. We enroll both groups and individuals in our service trips.
