How are you investing in your summer?

This summer, thousands of students will go around the world on a Summer Mission with Cru. They will see God move with their own eyes – and through their own lives.

As the largest missionary organization in the world, Cru knows how to prepare you, and send you to be effective. Cru’s full-time staff missionaries don’t just lead the trip, but also focus on pouring into you as you pour into others – guiding you, training and encouraging you. Our expertise with college students merge with our global ministry partnerships to form a summer that is significant to both you and the local ministries.

On a Summer Mission with Cru, you will:

  • Go with a team of other college students

  • Grow Closer to God

  • Experience the meaning of community

  • Bring the Gospel to people who need Jesus

  • See the world through God’s eyes

  • Learn to articulate the Gospel to anybody, anywhere

Though you can go almost anywhere in the world on mission this summer with Cru, Harvard Christian Impact and Athletes in Action focuses on four major areas:

  • South Africa

    • By partnering with a local non-profit in South Africa, our team of students can expect to have a life changing Summer working with disadvantaged youth. By providing spiritual, educational and leadership resources, volunteers seek to empower youth (particularly the least resourced and most “at-risk”) to reach their God-given potential and help make the changes they want to see in their community.

  • Breakthrough

    • In this great, unreached country we will creatively talk with students on several campuses about knowing Christ. You will grow in your ability to begin conversations and communicate your faith as you make friends from around the world. All while enjoying a close-knit community growing together in Christ’s love! Experience ministry like you have never experienced it before and work alongside people from other countries as well!

  • Boston Summer Mission

    • This summer mission is centered around having an internship for the summer while still seeking to be on mission and live in community. You will live, eat, play, and work in the beautiful city of Boston, with it's rich history and desperate need for the gospel as one of the intellectual hubs of the world.


      -To spend a summer in a meaningful community that is seeking to prepare students on how to live a Christ-centered life outside of the college campus.

      -Discovering ways to integrate social justice in our weekly rhythms, or what it looks like to dedicate all our working hours to justice.

      -Learning how to take Christ into the marketplace, and interacting with Cru alumni still living in the city and seasoned professionals to learn how work and faith can better integrate.

      -Giving a vision for the city of Boston and how the many pieces of the body of Christ fit together to bring about revival.
