Teenagers who have placed their faith in Jesus have the Holy Spirit living in them and empowering them for the Great Commission. The International Mission Board understands this reality and the opportunity to send students all over the globe. Through their established relationships, planning, and coaching, they are the ideal partners for mobilizing teenagers for global evangelism and outreach.

When and how long will the trips be?

Most opportunities will be during the summer and last between 8 to 14 days, including travel. Trips to the Americas and Europe are likely to be 8 days; Africa and Asia are likely to be 13-14 days.

Who can go?

Trips are aimed at high school youth (age 15 and up, or completed the 9th grade), but college students are welcome. Groups must include an adult (age 21 & up) for each five youth (18 & below). The minimum is two adults in a group and one same-sex adult for each sex of youth participating.

How many can go?

Projects will have capacity limits as decided by the missionary host. Most will be in the 15-25 range. A few will have higher capacity.

How much will trips cost?

Trips are priced according to ground costs (lodging, meals, local transportation, ministry expenses). Airfare and visa are additional costs handled by the travel agent. Ground costs range between $650 and $1100, based on length of project and location.

Do we have to use the IMB-approved travel agent?

Yes. The travel agent will work to provide the best airfares and arrangements that will avoid problems, monitor country entry requirements, coordinate arrival time with the missionary host, and provide travel assistance to the group. The travel agent will also arrange emergency insurance that will cover participants in case of accidents, illness, or crisis.

When can we sign up?

Trips are available now. Please contact the IMB at Trips are likely to fill up quickly since we will have a limited inventory.

Can individual youth (without a group) register?

No, these trips will be for a groups only, which would require at least two adults to accompany one or more youth.

We already have a connection with an IMB missionary. Can we still use this pathway to conduct a youth trip?

Yes! We’d be glad to contact your missionary to help set this up.
