Mexico Students

 March 14 - 17, 2024  | Tijuana, Mexico

This trip is a great opportunity for students to work together and accomplish big goals over the course of just three days.

We will be partnering with Homes of Hope, a ministry of YWAM just across the border near Tijuana, Mexico. They have been providing a hand up for families for the last 25 years. On this trip, students work together to build a home for a family in need.

This is a perfect opportunity for your student, whether they have been on a mission trip before or not.

Trip Dates: March 14 - 17, 2024
Trip Cost: $250
Focus: Home build
Trip Leader: Jeff Kiwanuka
Trip Size: 20
Open to:  Student Ministry


We believe that these trips are a next-step in the spiritual journey of people in the church. They are an opportunity for you to be pulled from the comforts of your home and immersed in a different culture with a group of people on the same mission. We want these trips to be catalyst for change in your life that directs you towards a deeper engagement with serving locally and globally.


The team will leave early in the morning on Friday morning, and will drive to Mexico in rental vans. Upon arrival, YWAM (Youth with a Mission) will host an orientation and training video and learn more about the mission. The team will go to the build site and begin framing the home. After completing the basic structure of the home, everyone will go back to the YWAM base for dinner and an opportunity to rest after a long day. The following morning, teams will go back to building sites and spend the day finishing the homes alongside the families and there will be a special orientation when the family officially gets to move in. Teams will leave the families with their new homes and go back to the base to clean up before eating dinner off site at a restaurant in town. The team will leave and drive back to Las Vegas the following morning/afternoon.
