YOUR SUMMER AT A GLANCE


memorial day weekend

Summer kicks off on Memorial Day Weekend with an all-staff training trip.

JUNE AND JULY

Each week of June and July one youth group team will arrive on a Sunday afternoon and leave on Saturday morning.

You’ll assist your trip leader in leading their trip.

august

Trips will come to a close after the first few weeks in August. Then the staff reunite for a debrief experience.

You’ll worship together, tell stories, rest, eat great food, and have a ton of fun.

YOUR SUMMER STIPEND


We ask interns to raise $1,600 to cover the cost of the internship and up to $3,400 as their summer stipend.

Here’s why we ask you to raise support:

We’re committed to providing high-quality programs. We want the projects we work on to be useful, meaningful, and characterized by excellence. Our commitment to lasting impact makes our trips more costly to run. Your willingness to raise support allows us to lower our trip costs to make them accessible for more students and churches.

So, before you write us off, here are 3 things to consider:

#1. We raise support, too. So we’ve got the tools to train you and help you along the way.

#2. Your internship fee is designed to cover your costs for the summer. Throughout the summer you won’t pay for your food, housing, gas, or even your favorite snacks.

#3. You can raise an additional $3,400 as your summer stipend. Do the math. Chances are you’ll make and save more money during a summer with LeaderTreks. Plus, you’ll have way more fun than the usual 9-5 grind.
