Will the students have health insurance? Yes. We purchase traveler’s insurance for every student through Adams and Associates. This is included as part of the trip cost. Adams is one of the leading companies in travel insurance.
What is the strategy / purpose of this trip? We will be partnering with International Mission Board missionaries. We adopt the purpose and strategy of the missionaries and do our best to serve them. This trip will consist mostly of prayer walking and relational evangelism.
What does the trip cost cover? Everything but souvenirs. The cost covers travel, food, lodging, training…everything.
What if I canít afford it? We do not expect anyone to pay for this trip out of pocket. We will equip everyone who is accepted onto the team with a comprehensive fundraising guide. Students who follow all the steps in the guide should be able to raise the full trip cost and then some.
Is this trip safe? Ultimately, we cannot guarantee anyone’s physical safety. God Himself does not promise us that. However, we are constantly monitoring the political situation and talking to the missionaries who live in country about the status and atmosphere of the surrounding area.
How big are these teams? The GO Students Extreme trip is a collection of teams. Each team will serve in a different city. Our estimation is that there will be anywhere from 5 to 20 people on each team.
How will I know if I have been accepted? Everyone who sends in a complete application to our office will receive a letter in the mail that will inform them whether or not they have been accepted. It may be up to a month before you hear back from us. The sooner you apply, the sooner we will be able to respond. If you have any other questions that are not answered on the website, e-mail your trip coordinator Allison Aycock at firstname.lastname@example.org.
