Many groups have been forced to cancel their long-distance mission trips due to the pandemic. But you don’t have to miss out entirely! Consider a Missional Journey with Youthfront. 

Your students can serve and get a deeper insight into the lives of those living on the margins in Kansas City. We have a variety of options available!

Sleep At Home, Serve The City – $199 

This is the “day camp” version of our Missional Journeys!  This 5-day experience includes our morning formational experiences, daily lunches made by immigrant neighbors, and coordination of service projects.

  • Best value
  • Create more flexibility by sleeping at home

3-Day Intensive Immersion- $199

Our 3-day Intensive Immersion gives you the highlights of our week-long, Missional Journey in a short, action-packed experience.  Includes formational experiences, amazing meals, service projects, and overnight stay (with sufficient space for social distancing) at a local church.

  • Affordable
  • Great for busy schedules

Week-long, Missional Journey – starts at $299

This has it all.  This 5-night, 6-day, turn-key experience is led by full-time Youthfront staff with years of experience living in under-resourced neighborhoods.  Every day will start with engaging learning experiences that help youth understand how the brokenness in our city intersects with the mission of God.  Our service opportunities create pathways for youth to stand with hurting people to do tangible good.  Evening meals are prepared by locals who highlight the very best of our city’s cultural diversity.  Lodging at a local, Hispanic church will give your group a sense of being away while being only a short drive from home.

  • Fully-programmed, turn-key experience led by local experts
  • Discounts for local and first-time groups!

Customized City Experiences – starting at $39/day

Missional Journeys 2020 Schedule

Argentine, Kansas City KS

When you sign up for a week in the Argentine neighborhood, you’re committing to a week of learning, hard work, and community.

Whether you live or not in Kansas City, spending a week in the neighborhood will allow you to have a deeper insight to the lives of millions of people living in the margins in the US. This experience is key not only to understand and empathize with those less privileged than us, but also to learn from them, and make this journey a two-way street.

Croc, Mexico

On the outskirts of Monterrey, Croc is a fast growing community where Youthfront started an after-school program more than 15 years ago.

Today, this program is led by locals and provides kids in Croc with fun activities and additional classroom time. During the summer, visiting teams will work alongside local leadership to host a summer camp for these kids, preparing fun games, workshops, and lessons.
