Location and directionsGet Directions
School buses and private vehicles will be used for 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.
Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport. Please DO NOT book airfare until you have received written confirmation from Youth Unlimited that you have been placed at this site.

Covenant has taken a break from hosting Special Needs SERVE for a few years but we are excited to be doing it again and look forward to a rewarding time in the summer of 2018.
