Zero. Everything from food to lodging to entertainment is covered.

8. Who accompanies my child on a mission trip?

Our Youth Director, YG Team Advisors and YG Alumni accompany the group, as well as contractors who guide YGers at their work sites and other “behind-the-scenes” logistics staff.  All adults who travel on the mission trip have had a background check completed.
