Parents give the money. Parents put in the time. They are just as much a part of your student’s mission trip experience as he or she is – at least, they are at the beginning. So how do you help parents stay connected after all the payments are made, the logistics are set, and their kid’s suitcase is packed? How do you help them walk alongside their students from the preparation to the coming back from their mission trip? This resource is designed to enrich the journey that parents experience while their student is part of a mission trip.
Helping Parents Connect asks questions to get parents thinking about how they can best connect with their student before the trip, during the trip, and after the trip. It is a tool designed to get them involved from the beginning and to help them grow with their kids through this experience.
