Fairbanks, Alaska 2018

Fairbanks, Alaska

To many, Alaska stands as America’s final frontier—beautiful, rugged, and maybe even a little dangerous. But for those few who call Alaska home, hardship is constantly knocking at the door, especially for the elderly. The extreme weather conditions, the annual risk of wildfires, the tension of different cultures living in close proximity, a surprising number of homeless people (especially teenagers), and high rates of alcoholism, domestic violence, and sexual assault—make it anything but a glamorous and inviting place to live at times.

Call our expert International Mission Trip advisors at 800-747-2157.

Prices do not include airfare from North America. However, in Peru, our price includes the airfare from Lima to Pucallpa.

To reserve space on a trip, a nonrefundable $100 deposit is due when you register. Final payment is due 60 days before departure. Please visit our website for complete details of our cancellation policy.

All U.S. citizens need a valid passport to enter a foreign country and return to the United States. It must be valid six months beyond your intended stay and have 1-2 blank pages remaining. A passport is not required for trips to Puerto Rico and Alaska. Visas are not required for most trips. For full information, please ask your mission trip planner at time of booking.

Our international trips are family-friendly, so, in most cases, kids can serve along with adults. Contact Robin at 866-595-4906 for more location-specific age requirements. You must have one adult (21 or older) for every five students. If you have both males and females in your group, you must have at least one adult volunteer of each gender.

Most meals are covered as part of your registration, except for free days if you're serving in Alaska or Puerto Rico. Please see the detailed itinerary of your international trip for any exceptions.

Most meals will be provided by our ministry partners, who have been carefully trained to prepare safe and nutritious meals for our teams. You will get a taste of local food on all of our trips, and some locations will include American food as well.

Your international mission trip covers gratuities for meals in restaurants that are included for the week. Gratuities for porters or housekeeping staff if you stay in a hotel during your trip are at your discretion. Airport porters who help with your bags will expect to be tipped $1-$2, and if you participate in a guided tour or fun activity on your free day, you may want to consider tipping your hired guide.

While some adventures are more physically strenuous than others, most international trips will include at least four 8-hour service days in hot and humid environments. Your group can work at the level of physical exertion with which they’re comfortable.

The safety of your group is a top priority for us, as we’re sure it is for you. In all the areas we serve, we take extra precautions to make sure you or your group is as safe as possible. Guided by our local, experienced ministry staff partners, we avoid situations that are inherently dangerous. We’re also proactive by choosing lodging facilities and transportation that are safe and reliable. Your mission trip advisor is glad to answer further safety questions.

Probably. If you’re looking for a trip specially designed for your group, we may be able to accommodate that for you. We have several trips a year that we custom design for groups, at a date and location that fits their needs. Pricing and availability vary, but if you’re interested in a custom week, contact Robin at ralm@group.com, or call 1-800-747-2157 for more information.
