SSP is an ecumenical Christian nonprofit organization, providing life-changing service projects in low-income communities. We invite high school, middle school, and intergenerational volunteers to experience the profound power of serving people with a culture and background different from their own.

All youth are welcome and affirmed at SSP. We create safe spaces for LGBTQ+ youth, staff, and adults to explore the connection between faith and service, and strive to exemplify God’s unconditional love. We embrace diversity, which gives our communities strength and vitality, and believe we are more impactful when we collaborate with others.

Explore. Build. Grow.
