Teen Trip Information Session

Teen Trip

Each year, REACH for Uganda offers a chaperoned Teen Service Trip to give students the opportunity to visit our program and volunteer at our schools and clinics in Uganda. This trip is only for teens (ages 15-18) and limited to 12 teens total. All must be fully vaccinated and provide a negative Covid test to travel. Traveling with REACH to Uganda is an opportunity to travel and stay in Africa at a relatively low cost and to contribute to a meaningful program.

 

Service opportunities will include:

 

  • Volunteering at Arlington Junior School (AJS) and interacting with students, teachers, and staff
  • Kicking off the Arlington Traditional School Reading Challenge at AJS
  • Volunteering at Matuwa Junior School, the sister school for Tuckahoe and Nottingham Elementary Schools
  • Volunteering at the Beatrice Tierney Health Clinics
  • Visiting outreach schools and interacting with their students
  • Mentoring students through games, activities, and meaningful conversations
  • Going on a visit to your sponsored student’s house to experience a traditional meal
  • Engaging in various sightseeing activities such as climbing Mt. Nusu, Namisindwa Hill, Buraba and Larso Falls; hiking Sipi Falls; visiting the source of the Nile River; and going on a land and water safari in Murchison Falls

 

An informational meeting about this trip will be held on Sunday, April 17th at 4pm via Zoom.  If have any questions about the trip, please don’t hesitate to contact Joyce at joyce@reachforuganda.org or Amy Hanson at amyh@reachforuganda.org.
