Where We Serve
In Chicago, students meet with and learn from various community partners that focus on restorative justice, reconciliation, and peace circles in response to the effects of violence and poverty in the Chicago community.
Mission: Possible Denver focuses on refugee resettlement where participants work with organizations that assist refugees in entry and adjustment to the United States. The group also works with Growing Colorado Kids that addresses hunger faced by refugee youth.
Mission: Possible Neah Bay is a cultural immersion on the Makah Reservation. The reservation is located in the North-West corner of Washington, situated on the coast and nearby Lake Ozette where the Makah Tribe has lived since pre-colonial times. Students work in the elementary school, support projects in the community, and build relationships with residents of the Makah Tribe.
Mission: Possible New York focuses on the impact of incarceration on women, family, and children. Students work with the organization Hour Children, which helps incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women and their children successfully rejoin the community, reunify with their families, and build healthy, independent and secure lives. To hear from students who attended Mission: Possible New York read their reflections here.
San Francisco focuses on sustainability and environmental justice issues where participants work with the parks conservancy and other organizations to do habitat restoration, build trails, and learn about opportunities to be environmentally conscious.
The focus of Mission: Possible Sisters, OR is on affordable housing. Students volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, supporting the construction or rehabilitation of homes while building relationships with the homeowners and community.
