Projects

As your participants enter into the lives of others and build relationships with the people of Kenosha, they’ll experience God working through them at projects such as:

  • Engage and interact with individuals with disabilities. You will be doing many different activities that include: socializing, playing games and helping with projects.
  • Brighten the day for seniors at several assisted living centers--help with games, crafts, and gardening.
  • Assisting in food distribution; “shop” with clients, pack groceries, stock shelves, and help out in the warehouse.
  • Interact and serve people with disabilities at a center by deep cleaning windows, ministry vehicles, wheelchairs and help beautify the grounds.
  • Assist Summer Day Camp Counselors with activities and events for kids ages 5–15 at one of three different locations.

Our Partner

We have a Local Coordinator there that maintains connections throughout the year with the organizations that we serve so that our service and relationships are sustainable. You may meet them during your week as they pop in and out. 

Project Crews

Participants are split up on six-person project crews for the work portion each day. In most cases, this is one adult and five youth, each person from a different church. In our experience, when groups allow us to mix participants up to make crews, individuals develop social and leadership skills, make new friends, and develop a closer bond with the people they are serving and their own youth group. If you have questions about this process or have specific requests, please give us a call. If needed, we can keep your group together, but still on crews of 6 people. (Due to age, participants at our preteen camps are kept together as a group, but still on crews of 6 people.)
