Sierra Service Project (SSP) is an ecumenical Christian nonprofit organization. We invite middle school, high school, young adult, and intergenerational participants to join our young adult summer staff in exploring faith, building bridges between communities, and having fun right where we are. Learn about our 2022 summer program. Meet the SSP team, learn about our theology, and our 46 year history working with young people and community partners across the Western US. SSP’s mission is to:

“Build faith and strengthen communities through service to others.”

Join Us In Person Next Summer!

We are excited to announce SSP’s 2022 summer program plans! Youth, young adult, and adult volunteers will work with partner communities in (drumroll, please…) Smith River, CA; San Diego, CA; and Tsaile, AZ between July 3 and August 13, 2022! Priority registration will open in October. We are thrilled to return to in-person collaboration with our community partners.

Please note that a requirement to participate in our 2022 summer program is that all volunteers and staff must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Additional safety guidelines will be outlined in registration and preparation materials.

Stay tuned for more details on the summer program in our information packet, in development now. In the meantime, watch our Summer 2022 Town Hall recording for additional context around SSP’s decisions and plans.

We are immensely grateful for the patience and understanding of the SSP community as we continue to navigate the challenges and needs of our youth and the communities with which we serve. We can’t wait to build with you again.
