Mission Trip - Liberia

CCV is excited to visit Liberia for the another year. Our partner in Kakata, Liberia has a community church and school. They have local enterprise to develop their community, a church, and a school with over 1000 children enrolled. Our team will visit them for the week in local service projects, soccer clinics, and children's activities. 

The main emphasis for our time in Liberia will be SOCCER clinics and tournaments, and VBS/Children's Activities with the kids in the school. We are looking for high energy team members who can work hard in long days!  Soccer skills not required but helpful!

Do I need to get any shots? Where can I get shots?

Please visit cdc.gov/travel for up to date vaccination requirements for your destination.

There are lots of great travel clinics in the valley to get your shots, so you can find one close and convenient for you. Please inquire soon as there has been a shortage of Yellow Fever Vaccines in the USA.

A visa is required for those who have a valid USA passport that doesn't require within 6 months. We will assist you in the paperwork, but check out THE INSTRUCTIONS. Visa requires payment of $70.  We have taken $70 off the cost of the trip so that you can pay it directly.
