Mission Trips & Service

The Glacial Community Y decided in 2017 to take our mission international by forming partnerships in which we could offer support, resources, and volunteer hours to help strengthen our core values here, and share those with organizations around the world. To date, we have partnerships with Esperanza Viva, a Christian youth home and orphanage in Puebla, Mexico, and with the YMCA of Valparaiso, Chile. Over the course of these first few years in these partnerships we have sent multiple teams to serve and build relationships within these organizations. 


YMCA of Valparaiso, Chile

We partner with the Y-USA and other YMCA’s around the country to help support the mission of the Y in the beautiful city of Valparaiso, Chile. Our volunteer time in Chile consists of service projects, community outreach, teaching seminars, program development and support of their George Williams School. Trips usually last 8-10 days and include some time to see the beautiful country of Chile.
