Mission: Possible Detroit - Having fun in the D!
August 5-10. A mission experience for Youth and Young Adults ages 12 and up. There are two ways to participate: One is for a student to stay for the entire week, including overnights, which costs $150. The other is for a parent/adult and student to attend 1, 2, or 3 days as commuter participants. The cost for both to attend is $25/day for the pair. If the day option is chosen, a parent/adult must drive the student to and from the mission site and stay with the group the entire time. We will typically be at the worksite from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Details about the location will be sent out to the parent/adult. We will be staying at Christ Church, Detroit for the week and working with organizations in Detroit. Sign up at the secure registration site: https://www.edomi.org/yaya/missionpossible/
