1. How many participants will be attending the BYM 2016 trip?
Typically, 100 travelers including staff and alumni participate in the Belen Youth Missions trip. This year, however, we are not chartering our own plane and the total group will be 75.
 
2. How many chaperones will attend the BYM 2016 trip?
The group will be led by faculty members Mr. Geohavanny Perez and Octavio Ramos. The group will also be accompanied by alumnus, Jesuit Brother Michael Martinez along with other alumni.
 
3. What are the costs associated to the trip?
There are several. The initial payment paid per participant is roughly $750 to cover the cost of airfare (chartered flight). In addition to that, each participant has been asked to fundraise a minimum of $750. That money will be used to cover the cost of food, internal transportation and the project itself. Additionally, in-kind donations are sought after to help offset costs.
 
4. I can't make a monetary donation but I want to help the Mission Trip... what can I do?
Not everyone can contribute financially, understandably, but if you would like to help, we are accepting donations for certain goods. Please visit our supplies page in order to get a detailed list of the items we need for the trip. 
 
5. How can students fundraise the $750?
Students are encouraged to use their personal fundraising page to email friends and family, they are encouraged to share the link to their personal fundraising page via social media. Additionally, students can organize car washes, fundraising nights at area restaurants (Apizza Brooklyn, PDQ Miami, Chile's, Chicberry Frozen Yogurt, just to name a few) and appeal to people at their parishes.
