Trip Registrations

SEE OUR LIST OF UPCOMING TRIPS AND REGISTER BELOW!
WOULD YOU LIKE TO BRING YES TO YOUR CITY?  Please contact Katrina Bitar to set up a trip: kbitar@focusna.org.
Our mission is to create experiences that allow participants to engage with the poverty of their city, equipping them to become servant leaders in their own communities.  Local clergy and youth workers have invited YES to their community to give local youth this opportunity.
Traveling to a YES Trip outside your city is wonderful, but spots on trips are primarily for local students.
If you are from outside the city, you are welcome to join, as long as there are enough spots for local students.
Come and be equipped to serve — to make a difference here and now!
  • Be guided thru an educational and formational experience of your city, its people, and its needs
  • Learn how to approach people in need, and how to break down stereotypes
  • Connect with organizations doing great work in your city
  • Share fellowship and learning with other youth eager to serve
We come by invitation and set up trips by request, so we’d love to hear from you!
