Inner-City Outreach trips involve Grove City College students
traveling to cities throughout the United States, as well as the world, to
minister to others and share the Gospel. The program has grown to an average of
20 trips annually, with almost half to international destinations. Inner-City
Outreach trips are student-initiated and student-led. Grove City College
provides training and resources for the leaders of each approved trip.
In the field of medicine, you learn to take on new challenges each day
with each new patient. At Grove City College, we believe that hands-on
experience with patients from another culture is a great way of preparing our
future medical professionals. Our students minister to bodies and souls as they
travel to work in clinics internationally on a two-week medical internship—and
they come back with a broadened knowledge of the world and a heightened
sensitivity to issues of culture and ethics in medicine. Come to the Office of International Education for more details.
Each year, students with a passion for service are selected to go on
summer-long, individual missions trips to a safe location of their choosing.
Students apply for the competitive, College-run program. Those selected spend a
summer in an area with an organization identified by them. The College assists
by providing preparation seminars to the Red Box awardees, and offers funding
for most travel expenses.
