The annual trip to Portland focuses on service to those in need, as well as highlights the unique cultural activities that Portland has to offer. This trip presents the students with an opportunity to get to know the city, take part in cultural experiences, and broaden their horizons. Many of our students come from cities and miss the lifestyle that accompanies it. Old memories and triggers can present themselves, these can be old behaviors, substances, or technology. The Portland trip allows for a safe environment to work through these obstacles and prepares students for upcoming home visits. Students can take the opportunity to tour Portland State University.
Students will depart from the Portland airport (PDX) for their home visits in December. When returning, they will need to fly into Medford (MFR).
