About Charleston WV Student Mission Trip

We've set up a registration page that will allow you to donate to the overall Mission goal! Just click "register" to donate!!!

Those with a heart for service will be very excited about this opportunity! We'll be traveling to Charleston WV, to support under-staffed social service organizations meeting the needs of families in urban Appalachia. During a week in Charleston, our group will have the opportunity to learn firsthand about the people, history and culture of the city.

We will serve and build relationships with a variety of people in Charleston through the Boys & Girls Club, Union Mission, Covenant House and local senior centers. During the evenings, worship with a local congregation and feast with friends old and new at a community potluck, which almost always includes a famous homemade cobbler! The mission team we've chosen, YouthWorks, has partnered with this community since 2003.

Service Opportunities: Students may serve all or part of the week at a food shelf, clothing distribution center, soup kitchen, children’s program or elder care facility.

Lodging: Students will need to bring an air mattress or a sleeping bag, as we'll be sleeping on the floor of the church (girls and boys on separate floors).

Rock Lake Presbyterian Community Center
801 Lincoln Dr.
South Charleston, WV 25309

Food: Meals will be provided by Youthworks each day (Cookouts, pizza, pasta, BBQ etc.)
