This school year marks Sierra Service Project’s 8th year offering Weekends of Service for local youth groups. Over the years we have planned a variety of service projects for youth to be involved in their communities – every weekend is unique!

Where do Weekends of Service take place?

Sacramento

Weekends of Service in Sacramento are in partnership with our Rancho Cordova Home Beautification program. The work will be focused on home repairs and we will be housed at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church in Sacramento.

Portland

Weekends in Portland are based out of Sunnyside Community House and focus on homelessness and food insecurity. We will partner with a variety of nonprofit organizations for our service work.

San Diego

The first ever Weekend of Service in San Diego’s South Bay will be held over MLK Jr. Weekend. We will partner with a variety of nonprofit organizations for our service work and participate in Border Church on Sunday in Friendship Park.

When can we serve?

We are offering four Weekends of Service during the 2017-2018 school year:

Sacramento:

  • January 12-14 MLK Jr. Weekend
  • February 16-18 Presidents Day Weekend

San Diego:

  • January 13-15 MLK Jr. Weekend

Portland:

  • March 9-11

Contact Megan Walsh if you would like to schedule a weekend outside of these dates for your group.

How many people will be at a Weekend of Service?

We hope to enroll between 25 and 45 volunteers total in each session. No group is too small – one youth and one adult make a group!

What age groups are welcome?

All weekends are for both middle school and high school youth groups. Youth grades 6th through 12th are welcome to participate.

The weekend in San Diego is Intergenerational and open to anyone 12 years old and older!

What is the cost and what is included?

The cost for Weekends of Service is $110 per participant and includes all meals, lodging for two nights, supplies, and a t-shirt.

Are there scholarships available?

Yes. Our commitment is that no youth should be excluded from participating due to lack of money. Scholarships are available for Weekends of Service and are applied to the final payment.
