SF Exploration and Service

Between San Francisco exploration, incredibly rewarding service projects, and even a haunted house tour, the California Service Program has not disappointed so far! On our long road trip to Lake Tahoe we have time to ponder everything we have done and reflect on the amazing service we have already completed. From volunteering at the Glide […]

Tahoe and CA Whitewater

It has been a little while since our last blog, but no time has been wasted exploring more of Northern California. After our exciting road trip to Lake Tahoe where we were able to jam out to some amazing music in the car and stop for food at America’s best fast food stop, In-N-Out. We […]

GLIDE Foundation Service

Hey guys! Today was an amazing day full of eye opening experiences. We woke up at 5 15 with the very loud owls. We first went to GLIDE foundation, a good kitchen in San Francisco. Everyone was picked for a different task such as collecting tickets and serving food. My job was to hand out […]

Shout Outs From the A- Team!

Our day continued as we explored San Francisco, including Fisherman’s Warf, and some super cool looking seals! We then took a trolley to China Town and had a […]

Reflections on Our Two-Weeks

Upon arrival everything soon becomes shared. We share tents, responsibilities, and experiences. We share all these once-in-a-lifetime adventures and see out-of-this-world views and sights, helping out as we go. All of our experiences are unforgettable, but the times where we bond the most are those in-between moments. The long car rides, unique games, and intimate […]

Loving Lake Tahoe!

Monday was spent primary on the beautiful beaches of Lake Tahoe. We swam and played games all day long. It was our first totally relaxed day, and while it was fun, it did prepare us for our service with the Lake Tahoe Rim Trail. We built trails next to Heavenly Ski Resort in Nevada for […]
