Go South Africa Vector Badge Design

Join a South African adventure where you’ll experience beauty and gratitude in a way that will change your life. Our work in South Africa is about profoundly and sustainably offsetting the barriers that come with extreme poverty, an AIDS epidemic, and the aftermath of apartheid.


Change your World


The impact will be massive

Whether you’re gathered to work in a Durban shack community, shaking the hand of a Zulu chief, or helping a child to read and defeat the incredible odds stacked against them in Johannesburg—you’ll see God moving in radical ways.


A life-changing story awaits

It’s intense. It’s powerful. It’ll shake you up. In fact, it may just spark a whole new direction for your life. Each year, hundreds of people change their lives by taking trips around the world. Each trip builds cross-cultural bridges, sustainably improves the lives of locals, and creates lasting friendships for those sharing the experience.

Who can go?
This trip is for anyone—Crossroads people, non-Crossroads people, friends and family from out of town, people from all over the faith spectrum—with a heart for serving. The only requirement is that you are 18 years old, or 10 years old with a parent or guardian. Groups of two or more, like families or small groups, can sign up together.

How much does it cost?
$3,600-3,750. This covers your flight, hotel, meals, work supplies, travel insurance, and activities. Not covered are things like souvenirs, snacks at the airport, passport fees (if you need a new one) and shots (if you decide to get them).

What is the travel like?
You will fly on a commercial airline. It takes about 24 hours to get there. It’s a great time to catch up on sleep, talk to people you are traveling with, read, watch movies on your 21st century in-seat entertainment system, listen to every song on your iPod twice, or just do nothing…which you probably haven’t done in a long time.
