Youth Mission Trip

Mission Partner:  We will work with the Native American Advocacy Program We will work on contraction projects to help the Lakota people on the Rosebud Reservation. The poverty here is staggering. The reasons are many and complex and we will learn more about the challenges that the people face. The Native American Advocacy Program is making a positive difference.  

Cultural Preservation:  Being Lakota is the thread that binds the people on the Reservation together. The Reservation should be a place where the virtues of the Lakota tradition can survive and thrive. But as many of the elders will tell you, they are watching the traditional ways, language, stories, and knowledge fade away. The Native American Advocacy Program is working to help preserve and share this culture for us all.

Trip Dates:  June 24 to July 2
We will gather at church at 8am on Saturday June 24 and travel in vans to South Dakota. We will drive back on the following weekend and return in the afternoon on July 2. We will be staying in the bunk houses of the Native American Advocacy Program's Youth Camp, located in the Milks Community of the Rosebud Reservation, 5.5 miles southeast of St. Charles, SD.

Trip Cost: $400  
This will cover food, lodging and transportation. We will work together to meet our fundraising goal of $8,000 for our work projects.
