What kind of groups can travel together?
We at UUCSJ have group journey options for youth, young adults, adults of all ages, and multigenerational groups!

Why should my congregation/group journey together?
- Traveling as a group can be a powerful experience. You don’t just travel together – you also prepare together, learn together, and think about how to integrate the experience together.
- Sending multiple people from a congregation, school or community on a journey amplifies the impact of the experience. Once home, participants can share their experience with the rest of their community and help deepen their commitment to justice work.
- Visit UUCSJ.org/starter-pack to learn more about UUCSJ values and why you should journey as a group
Where can we go and what justice issue will we learn about?
- Please visit our destinations page to learn more about where our journeys go. Below is a brief snapshot:
- Nicaragua: Climate Justice, Economic Justice and/or Feminism
- Arizona/Mexico Border: Immigration Justice & Solidarity through Sanctuary
- West Virginia: Economic and Climate Justice
- Houston: Disaster Recovery and Climate Justice
How many participants can travel?
- For most programs, we need at least 10 participants for a journey to run and can accommodate 15-18 total.
- If you don’t think you can get 10 people to from your own congregation/community, you can partner with another, neighboring group.
How much will it cost and what is the process for planning a journey?
- We ask for a $1,000 non-refundable deposit to hold specific dates for congregations/groups. This can be paid by the church itself or by individual members.
- Prices for each individual participant will depend on the trip destination and duration.
