Best Spring Break Mission Trips in 2024: A Complete Guide

Blog Home
by D.J. Morgan D.J. currently serves as EM's Creative & Marketing Director, helping connect volunteers to life-changing opportunities to serve and grow together on mission trips.

Whether you’re a college administrator, youth pastor, or simply a parent looking to engage your family and friends in something meaningful, spring break mission trips might be just the right fit for your group. At Experience Mission, we think spring break is the perfect time to unplug from academics and commit to learning to love and serve others like Jesus.

Why go on a Spring Break Mission Trip?

Spring break mission trips are a meaningful way to unplug from the daily grind of school, work, and life. While it may seem counterintuitive to use vacation time for service, we’ve found a week of putting others first and refocusing your faith can be exactly what students need to rest and unplug from school and finish the school year well. So, whether you’re planning your alternative spring break or putting together a team of middle school or high school students, we’ve compiled a list of the best spring break locations for everyone.

How many people can go on Spring Break Trips?

For Experience Mission trips, most locations require a minimum of 6-10 people and a maximum of 50-60 people. Interested in bringing a group of 60-100? Contact us for special arrangements.

What are the best Spring Break Mission Trip options for my team?

Choosing a location for spring break can depend on a few factors including budget, group size, and preferred distance from home. Check out our guide to choosing a location for a mission trip, or browse our best suggestions for 2024 spring mission trip locations below.

Caribbean Spring Break Mission Trips


1. Catadupa, Jamaica

Beyond the beachside resorts and adventures in Montego Bay, up a winding road filled with potholes and wandering goats, sits a vibrant and thriving church community at Christian Fellowship Church. Partner with local leaders to invest in the community in meaningful ways to make a real impact. Teams will find themselves working on building projects to improve homes, roads, and, at times, even water systems, while also spending time with local youth and truly becoming a part of the church family. While this rural Jamaican mission trip is far from a beach vacation, mission teams will find themselves refreshed by the welcoming and genuine spirit found in the Jamaican people. Check out our 5 Reasons to serve in Jamaica.

2. Belize

Join a mission trip to Belize and come alongside a network of Spanish-speaking churches who are actively bringing the gospel to their communities. Whether you’re a youth group, college students, family, or group of adults, spring mission trips to Belize give you the chance to partner with local church leaders to complete building projects while also reaching out to local kids through Kids Club programs. You’ll serve alongside fellow Christians who are thriving in small towns amidst vast expanses of jungle and be able to encourage them to continue reaching their neighbors.

3. Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico has been in and out of crisis since a hurricane whipped through the U.S. island territory in 2017 with tornado-level winds, drenching the island with intense flooding, crippling communications, and decimating countless homes. In 2019, the island was struck by an earthquake swarm, displacing many families from their homes. The global pandemic slowed rebuilding and recovery and has left the territory in a fragile economic state. And now, massive flooding and blackouts from the hurricane have left thousands of households to attempt to rebuild once more. Connect with incredible local organizations on a spring mission trip to Puerto Rico. If you are looking for an opportunity to make a tangible impact on the lives of real people in need, this will be a great spring trip for your group.

Service and Learning Trips

4. Rio Grande Valley, Texas

Go beyond news headlines and political debates. Immerse your student group in the local culture, struggles, and joy found at the U.S./Mexico border. Tour south Texas and develop meaningful relationships while partnering with local pastors who lead their congregation faithfully through daily hardships taking place in their community. Spring break groups in McCallen, TX often have the opportunity to serve asylum-seekers, immigrant and refugee communities, and put real faces and names to debates in our news media and across the country.

5. Chicago, Illinois

This trip is for those wanting to move towards a deeper understanding of poverty and bring an awareness of the issues surrounding those living in the inner city. Many on the outside hear and see mostly negative portrayals of the inner city, which contribute to unhelpful labeling and misguided interactions. We hope to reveal the giftedness of the community through healthy, meaningful experiences that combine service, learning, and active engagement.

6. Rural Towns of Cuba

Go beyond history books and headlines and travel to Cuba. Get to know local church communities who are growing and thriving. Serve alongside young churches and encourage local pastors as they seek to lead under the rule of an anti-religious, communist government. This trip will challenge what you know about “living your mission” and inspire your team to live boldly in their faith.
