Event Details

Ignite Seattle is a weeklong service immersion experience for current high school students to participate in a transformative, unforgettable journey of service, justice, love, and compassion. Exploring issues of human trafficking and untangling the causes and persistence of modern slavery, as well as volunteering with faith-based and public organizations dedicated to eradicating the practice, Ignite Seattle provides youth with the venue to discover the Christian call to service at its intersection with issues of justice, accompaniment, and partnership.

Venue Information

We will be housed in a local UCC congregation, take public transportation around Seattle, and have an opportunity to partner with existing organizations that continue their engagement work throughout the year.

Youth will be certified for 15 hours of community service, useful for school, scouts, etc. Please bring your paperwork to Rev. Daniel Ross-Jones before the trip begins.

Financial Details

Thanks to the generosity of our FCCPA community, we have been able to reduce the cost of summer Ignite experiences for 2014. The Ignite Seattle participation fee is $700, of which $350 is due as a deposit at the time of registration. Fees are all-inclusive and reflect the following:

  • Program fees, including supplies and materials
  • Air transportation from San Jose-Mineta to Seattle, as well as all transportation within Seattle
  • Meals and accommodations
  • An Engage journal for first-time participants (or those who have misplaced their journals)
  • An Ignite cinchpack
  • An Ignite t-shirt
  • FCCPA chaperones at a 1:5 ratio

Deposit Policy: Deposits secure a spot on the Ignite trip. No spot is guaranteed without payment of the deposit. Deposits are refundable for any reason until February 28, 2014. Deposits, minus a $100 administration fee, are refundable until April 30, 2014. After that date, the deposit will be forfeited.

Fundraising Policy: At all times, the total balance of the participation fee is assessed to students. It is the intent that, through active fundraising, the registration deposit is the only out-of-pocket cost for participants. In order to create an environment that is affirming and empowering of our young people, as well as one that recognizes the vast extremes of wealth in our immediate community, fundraising is conducted as a collective effort. All participants are expected to fully and actively participate in fundraising activities, giving them a sense of ownership and pride in the important prep work for their service experience. Annually in the spring, two internal church group fundraising projects and one external group fundraising project will be held to complete the service trip budget. Following completion of the fundraising projects, any remaining balance to be raised will be divided equally among trip participants and assessed as the final participation fee. Any excess fundraising monies carry forward to future Engage programs.

Multiple Sibling Policy: Given the nature of our program budget and our effort to maximize subsidies across all participants, we are unable to offer regular discounts for multiple siblings participating in Engage programs. In cases of financial need, please contact Rev. Daniel Ross-Jones confidentially; no one is turned away from Engage programming due to financial need.

Group Size

Given past experience over the last few years, we are planning for up to 15 youth participants for Ignite Seattle. We may be able to accommodate a larger group, depending upon chaperone recruitment. After confirmed registrations have reached capacity, we will operate a wait list on a first-come, first-serve basis.
