Sierra Service Project

Sierra Service Project’s purpose is to build strong connections and resilience among communities, by equipping volunteers in home repair skills and community-based projects. Making necessary home repairs accessible to historically underserved residents allows communities to thrive and individuals to safely age in place. Inherent in the purpose is the specific involvement of youth and young adult volunteers. SSP’s mission is to:

“Build faith and strengthen communities through service to others.”

Join Us This Summer!

This summer, SSP youth, young adult, and adult volunteers will work with partner communities in Del Norte County, CA and Chiloquin, OR between June 30 and August 3, 2024! Participants do not need any experience with home repair work or power tools to volunteer. We are thrilled to return to work in collaboration with our partner communities.

Bring your group to volunteer with us to help residents safely age in place, and develop life skills and cultural humility in the process. Find all the details about our summer program and how to register in our 2024 Information Packet. Details on how to prepare for the service-learning experience and all aspects of your trip can be found in the 2024 Preparation Packet, released each spring.

Winter Snow in the Navajo Nation

SSP Summer 2023: Branching Out

As we explore the ‘Branching Out’ theme, our goal is to establish and fortify connections: with ourselves, with the people in community around us, and our sense of purpose or the divine.
