##FULL## Teens in Mission - Amsterdam city outreach (teenage option): Netherlands

Amsterdam, the capital city of the Netherlands, has a lot to offer, but also a lot to receive. The city is known for it's prostitution, drugs, homeless people and deprived urban areas. This year we want to challenge you, as a teenager, to step out of your comfortzone and reach out to these people in multiple ways. To shine a light in these places of darkness.

During this outreach different activities will be organized to support local churches and organisations. We will: prepare and organize sports and fun days for kids in Amsterdam-Noord who live in deprived urban areas. Do a prayerwalk for the red light district in Amsterdam. We will also do some practical work like painting and cleaning at a social community building or at familie homes that can really use some help. There is also time to socialize with internationals that work in Amsterdam.

The price quoted here does NOT include the costs of flights and travel insurance, but does include a $150 non refundable deposit.
