How to Start Planning Your Trip
Develop a Team
We encourage people who are interested in going on a short-term mission trip to form a team either from your church, organization, school, or family and friends. We challenge our teams to have a minimum of 15 people, however, 10 people is the minimum team size. Our guest house can comfortably accommodate a team of 25.
For Groups, Choose a Team Leader
Team Leaders serve as the main contact person for HRI for your team. The Team Leader helps recruit the team, makes all arrangements with HRI, encourages the team in their fundraising efforts, sends all monies in by the deadlines, is often the spiritual leader, and oversees the team on its trip.
Team Leaders can contact our ofﬁce to secure a trip date and to receive a Team Leader’s Packet that includes a Team Leader’s Guide that will walk you through the entire process of planning a successful trip, applications for your team, team building and cross-cultural activities to better prepare your team.
If you are not part of a team but would like to join us in Guatemala, we would still love to have you! You may choose to come on one of three dates specified for teams made of individuals from across the country. This is a great way to serve on a mission trip and meet new people. Contact our Missions Coordinator for more information.
Choose a Date
HRI sends teams to Guatemala year-around. Trips are generally 8-days long, starting and end on Saturday. HRI will ofﬁcially reserve the week you would like to plan your trip only when we have received a signed agreement from the Team Leader and a deposit from your team.
