Sierra Service Project  Youth Summer Service Projects 

Sierra Service Project offers week-long service projects during the summer for middle school and high school youth groups. Each summer, 125 churches and 2,000 youth and adult leaders join together at one of our sites located in urban and rural communities across the western states.  At SSP, youth are safe to grow in their faith, learn new skills, and make new friends while serving those in need. Last summer, teenagers completed 113 projects on 85 homes and community centers. SSP serves the elderly, poor and marginalized. Our service is offered without strings attached, with respect and humility
“Let us rise up and build.”
 

Vision Statement: 

The vision for our youth is to give them a voice and to let them know they matter, to provide young people with a place where they feel welcome, accepted, and safe, and to offer them support in all phases of their spiritual journey.

 

Mission Statement:

The youth group of Vista UMC is dedicated and passionate about giving back to the community. They would like to have a voice in their spiritual journey and trust that the love, kindness, respect, and  forgiveness will be returned from the community as they develop into self-reliant adults that become the leaders of tomorrow.
