Spring Break Trip

Spring Break Trip

Wesley has a long and rich tradition of spring break mission trips. We’re the original “alternative spring break”! In recent years we’ve traveled to Florida, Mexico, Philadelphia, Appalachia, Missouri, Virginia’s Eastern Shore, Arizona, New Orleans, Kentucky, South Carolina, Washington DC, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Atlanta.  In 2014 and 2016, we partnered with The Brody Jewish Center -Hillel at UVA for interfaith service trips to Appalachia and the Navajo Nation in Arizona.

Students choose to spend their spring break serving others, while in the process learning more about themselves and God’s action in the world. Spring break includes Christian outreach and service, worship, fellowship, faithful reflection, and a lot of fun. Our Student Coordinating Council organizes and plans the trips.

With the uncertainties of travel in the pandemic, our service trips are on pause for the moment. Please check back in fall 2022.  (In the meantime, we continue to serve and reach out in love to our neighbors in the Charlottesville community through local service projects.)

How do we fund the trip?

Through a combination of participant fees, group fundraising, and donations from our supporters, we take a large group on each year’s trip.

We are pleased to accept donations towards our trip, which can be sent directly to the Wesley Foundation. You can also make a donation online by clicking the “give” button in the navigation menu. Simply designate your gift as “spring break” or “service.”
