Transportation

Registration fees do NOT include transportation to and from the sites. Each youth missionary group must provide vehicle(s) and adult driver(s) (typically small group leaders) to transport an equal number of youth participants during the duration of the mission experience regardless of whether you fly or drive to the site. The vehicles you bring will be used to transport small youth missionary groups to the work site each day, so 12-passenger vans or mini-vans are preferred. Cars do not facilitate the transportation of an entire small group in one vehicle, so please do not bring them. If you wish to bring a bus, please check with the Host Team to see if this is acceptable before you make arrangements. If your group is unable to provide van transportation, please have a youth leader call Youth Unlimited to discuss options and additional charges.

Nearest Airport

Grand Rapids, MI (GRR).  Please DO NOT book airfare until you have received written confirmation from Youth Unlimited that you have been placed at this site.

Site Description

Grand Rapids has been called, “a cool city with warm hospitality.” Here in West Michigan, we’re on the on the cutting edge of art, cuisine, and culture, but we also have a distinctive small town feel as people are friendly and the streets are generally safe and clean.

While Grand Rapids is a wonderful place to live and visit, it is not wonderful for everyone who lives here. Nearly 16% of the population still lives below the poverty line. During your stay in Grand Rapids, you will have a chance to learn from and work alongside people in our community. We expect that God is going to move in mighty ways this week, both in the hearts of individuals and in meeting the needs of the community. Come be a part of the change!

Facilities

LaGrave Christian Reformed Church will be the host. The church is air-conditioned and we have a great youth building for our evening sessions and plenty of room to hang out after the sessions.

Day Away

You will have the opportunity to visit the beach at Grand Haven, MI during your trip. The Grand Haven Convention and Visitors Bureau websites states, “The beaches located in the Grand Haven Area are considered to be some of the best vacation spots during the summer months. There is an incredible amount of fun activities to participate in that will perfect a day spent on the beach…”
