August 15 – 21, 2019

All current high school students are invited to join the St. John-St. Paul Youth Ministry team and NPH USA for an immersion and service trip to the NPH home in the Dominican Republic this summer.

Experience firsthand how NPH USA transforms the lives of children! You will meet the amazing children, staff, and volunteers of NPH and learn about their daily lives. Whether you are new to NPH, or a longtime supporter, visiting an NPH home is the best way to see what they do in action.  We will have the unique opportunity to stay at the NPH home with the children, in a newly constructed visitor’s house. This will allow us to immerse ourselves in NPH life with the children and their culture. While the children are in school, you will help with the daily chores around the property, such as working in the gardens and farm, caring for the special needs children, working in the kitchen and carpentry shop, and other jobs the home assigns. After a morning of work, relax and hang out with the pequeños in the afternoons. Activities will be coordinated with the children of different age groups throughout the week. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to meet with the leadership of the NPH home, tour all of the home’s facilities, and hear from the children about living at NPH.

An NPH USA chaperone and 5 chaperones from the SJSP Collaborative will lead and oversee all travelers throughout the duration of the week. All chaperones are background checked and are experienced volunteers.
