This weeklong mission trip is a great way to help your youth (age 14 and up at the time of next summer) discover their faith through service. Come as a church group or come as an individual.
Drive west from New England, and you'll be in a whole different world. Guilderland is a predominantly middle-class community nestled into the Capital Region of New York state. Guilderland is just minutes away from Albany and offers a mix of country and city, the best of both worlds.
Your group will be near a popular upstate New York theme park, Six Flags Great Escape. Locals enjoy a trip to Saratoga, or the many parks the town has to offer.
Hidden away in this good-looking town are pockets of lower-income areas that are often overlooked. The elderly struggle to keep up their homes that they have lived in for a generation. And in recent years, Guilderland was one of the towns ravaged by flooding.
Your week will be well-spent in Guilderland, as your group helps those who truly are not able to help themselves. Along with painting, siding, and other carpentry projects, your group will probably be upgrading the weatherization of homes as well, which will hold down heating costs and provide greater comfort for yearst to come.
