Work Trips


2019 Work trip

A group of mostly adult and some high school-aged volunteers from the region will be spending time in Puerto Rico next summer, working in partnership with Lutheran Social Services of Puerto Rico and serving alongside our Puerto Rican neighbors in their continued process of rebuilding and strengthening communities after the devastation of Hurricane Maria.

The bulk of our efforts will focus on construction. Our goal is for at least half of our volunteers to have some demonstrable construction skills, while our other volunteers should be physically capable and eager to learn. Our volunteers last year ranged from age 21 to age 70. This summer we will also accept teenagers who have already completed 9th grade.

We will also spend some time exploring the rich culture and natural beauty of Puerto Rico.

We will serve over the course of two weeks, from July 21 through August 3. Volunteers may sign up for one or both weeks.
