This summer high school students (current 9th-12th graders) are invited to attend our Summer Service trip to Jerusalem Farm in Kansas City, Missouri from July 14-20. Cotter has brought students to Jerusalem Farm three other times in recent years and each time it's been a great experience. The cost for this summer service trip is $250 per person. That is a great price for transportation, food, lodging and service coordination for the week! We already have a group of students that plan to attend, but we are looking for a few more students to join them!
While at Jerusalem Farm, you will be in the heart of Kansas City while staying on an urban farm with chickens and large gardens. The majority of the service work will be home repair, working alongside those in need in Kansas City. You may be shingling a roof, building a deck, painting a house, remodeling a kitchen, etc. Each day comes new opportunities for service and no experience is necessary! At least one other school will be joining us on our week, so you're sure to make new friends from somewhere within the United States!
