GRACES hosts Vision Trips in Guatemala as well as Virtual Vision Trips. A vision trip mixes mission, culture, enjoyment, adventure and exploration into a unique and purposeful trip. The objective of a vision trip is to learn more about, partner with, and facilitate sustainability for GRACES’ programs in Guatemala.
In-Person Vision Trips
GRACES offers in-person vision trips in Guatemala. During a vision trip, participants are able to meet students and families, engage in service projects, learn about Guatemalan culture, and much more. Trips typically last four to six days.
The cost of a Vision Trip is $1,200 per person.
Virtual Vision Trips
GRACES will also be offering Virtual Vision Trips starting this year. This is about a two-hour event.
Participants will be able to visit a classroom and student’s home, as well as participate in a cultural activity of their choosing, such as cooking, Spanish language lessons, or dance class. We will also be offering special add-ons, such as a stove installation for a family, market shopping, and a unique experience for a student.
Prices of virtual vision trips are:
- $99 per individual
- $400 for a group of 5-10
- $600 for a group of 11-20
- $800 for a group of 21-30
(cooking supplies not included)

Culture of GRACES Vision Trips
We desire for the children, families and staff of GRACES’ projects to be encouraged and uplifted by every vision trip participant who comes to Guatemala. We hope that, with the support of participants, we can continue to empower, listen and learn from the Guatemalan people. We recognize that, ultimately, it is they who are the agents of change in Guatemala.
We also believe that it is important for the church and individuals to have a global perspective. Through vision trips, we offer participants the opportunity to see and learn about God’s global Kingdom.
As an organization, we want to create conscientious supporters. We believe it is vital for our supporters to see what we do, learn about the needs of our nonprofit, and see with eyes of hope the potential for each and every child we work with. Our expectation during vision trips is for supporters to come alongside the work we do in prayer, relationship and partnership.
