“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world” ~Archbishop Desmond Tutu
When: Summer 2022
Who: Adults, college students, and youth who have finished grades 9-12. (Note: trip is limited to 18 total participants.)
Registration: Check back here January 2022
In 2019 we worked with St. Matthew’s in Fairbanks, where The Rev. Betty Glover is now rector. This is the central church for the Diocese of Alaska (they don’t have a cathedral) and serves many of the surrounding villages. We helped them create digital archives of their historical pictures and documents and did some home and yard work for the local elders. We also visited one of the nearby villages and took a day to travel to Denali National Park.
Everyone pays their own way (adults, college students and youth). The Diocese and participants will not be subsidizing anyone’s participation in the trip. Fundraising is recommended as the diocese is not able to provide scholarships for this trip.
Everyone is asked to book their own flight and purchase travel insurance (typically an option if you purchase a flight through the airline’s web site). As we get closer to the trip we’ll post the adult leaders’ flights.
Check with the airlines prior to leaving re: the most current baggage allowances. Don’t forget that any liquids in your carry-on must be in a quart size transparent bag and must be less than 3oz. in size. Be sure to have any essential medications and at least one change of clothing in your carry on. Have luggage identification inside and out of all luggage, including carry on. We will have a group luggage tag for each person’s bag to make them easy to identify as part of our group.
