41 & Change Coffee CO.

A portion of every sale of 41 & Change Coffee goes to giving a young person in Nicaragua the week of their life at a Young Life camp, an experience that gives them a sense of their incredible God-given worth. We also build fundraising relationships with Young Life in North America, allowing students to raise funds for their own life-changing camp experience.

Our focus is to “make the needs of Haiti known,” to support opportunities for Haitians to provide for themselves and their families, empowering them to rise out of poverty… to be able to keep their families together… to avoid relinquishing their children to orphanages… providing educational opportunities for both parents & their children.

Make a donation to your local Young Life area, the location you served with Expeditions or to the Every Kid Scholarship Fund

The Every Kid Scholarship Fund was created to help under-resourced kids become world changers.

At Expeditions we believe every kid should have the opportunity to experience the life-changing transformation that happens when serving others as Jesus taught us to do throughout Scripture. We know an experience with Expeditions changes people from the inside out. We want city kids and suburban kids, kids from the projects and from the plains, able-bodied kids and kids with disabilities. We want every kid to know that a relationship with Jesus means serving one another and serving the least of these … and that’s how we change the world.

We’ve learned so often kids and their Young Life leaders in under-resourced areas want to serve in a cross-cultural setting but do not have access to people with funds to help support their Expedition. We never want funding to be the obstacle for kids to learn about service. So we’ve created the Expeditions Every Kid Scholarship Fund so we can begin to strategically offer Young Life leaders and local areas the opportunity to take their kids on an Expedition.
