Just5Days is a five-day service mission for Catholic middle school youth and their adult leaders. It provides hands on service experience, faith-centered learning, community prayer experiences, and summertime fun. We believe that every Catholic middle school youth should experience a mission trip that connects the hands of service with the heart of Jesus. Just5Days models Christian discipleship by connecting hands on community service work with the teachings of our Catholic faith.
What we do? Encourage middle schoolers to grow in discipleship with Jesus by connecting their volunteer service work with the teachings and prayers of the Catholic faith.
Who may attend? Any youth entering 7th, 8th, 9th grade, who registers as part of a parish or school team, is welcome. One adult (25 years old or older) is required to serve as the team leader. Additional adults must be a minimum of 21 years old or older. No group is too small!
Why participate? Your team won’t get lost in the crowd. We intentionally keep our maximum registration size to smaller numbers to ensure quality personal attention for each team. Our talented Just5Days staff also works to mentor middle school youth into various leadership roles during the week.
Preparation in advance of the week: Each participating group is provided with pre-trip materials and personalized support to make this week a powerful and transformative mission week. Once you are registered, you will receive a Team Participation Manual to help prepare your young people and their adult chaperones for a great week! During your week, our program staff will guide the prayers, learning sessions, and activities which will allow you more time with your young people.
In addition to the parish teams of youth participants and adult chaperones, the Just5Days staff includes a Program Director, Site Coordinator, and Prayer and Music Coordinator. All are trained professionals with experience working with youth.
Just5Days is sponsored by the Center for Ministry Development and hosted by the Diocese of Honolulu’s Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry.
