Planning your Trip

The Come, See, Be, Experience

Trip planning, especially internationally and to a developing nation, can be overwhelming. Through the Come, See, Be program, group leaders will have the assistance of SJF leadership in the trip planning process. Group leaders will work with a SJF representative to customize the basic itinerary to fit the desire of their group. Accommodations will be on-site at the SJF guest houses. Guides, drivers, speakers and activities will be arranged by the SJF, so that a group just needs to show up with hears and come, be, and see all that Haiti and the SJF have to offer.

Cost

The Come, See, Be experience, complete with trip planning assistance, accommodations, in-country transportation, and activities is available for a flat fee. All pre-trip costs, including airfare and travel fees; and personal expenses, including extra food and souvenirs; are the responsibility of the group participants. Groups wanting to preform manual labor projects will need to provide additional funds to pay for materials.
