This IMPACT team will work with Dana and Brandi Bates and VIATA ("Life" in Romanian) Program, a youth ministry sent through Young Life and located in the mountains above the impoverished coal-mining town of Lupeni in Jiu Valley. VIATA serves to help build a sense of community and hope for better life in this economically depressed area, where people seek work, basic needs, and a vision for the future. We will work to support a summer camp for high school and middle school aged children, where they are taught outdoor skills, rock and rope climbing, and Christian values. The team may also partner with Romanian youth in a project to improve their community.
Minimum age: 15
