Humanitarian XP Contingency Plan 2022
TEMPORARY PROGRAM – MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE: All bookings made during Registration Week (November 8-12, 2021), are eligible for a money-back guarantee. If the trip is canceled by Humanitarian XP 90 days or more prior to departure due to complications or restrictions arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, Builders and Parent Builders may either (a) switch with their same group to a Domestic Alternative Service Trip, and receive a difference in cost or (b) Humanitarian XP will refund them the entire cost of their trip less the original non-refundable deposit and any donations. Eligible refunds would be issued back to the original form of payment. If the trip is cancelled for any reason at 91 days or less prior to departure, the money-back guarantee is no longer valid.
To be eligible for the money-back guarantee, booking must be made during Registration Week (November 8-12, 2021), and travel must conclude by August 31, 2022.
YOUR SAFETY IS OUR TOP PRIORITY – HUMANITARIAN XP SAFECROSSINGS™
The safety of your Builder has always been a top priority at Humanitarian XP. We believe that life-changing impact is only possible when we work within a secure environment. The Humanitarian XP methodology already includes crucial aspects of our safety approach, but this year the sanitation protocols we are putting into place will help protect the Builders and those we serve even more.
Our commitment is to take precautions wherever we’re traveling and to work closely with our local coordinators and Trip Leaders to ensure safety. In light of the pandemic, this year we developed the Humanitarian XP SafeCrossings program.
SafeCrossings is a detailed guide for exactly how we’re making safety a top priority at every point along the trip. It includes safety protocols and clearing guidelines for each moment of the expedition — on the bus, at the worksites, in the hotels, while eating meals, and more.
DOMESTIC ALTERNATIVE TRIPS
Since the pandemic began, we have been hearing from parents about how much they want their child to have the kind of life-changing experience in a faith-based environment that many of them experienced as youth. The events of the Covid-19 pandemic have caused isolation, stress, and missed opportunities for too many youth.
Our team is working incredibly hard this year to plan double our normal amount of trips, so that in the event that you can’t travel internationally to your chosen destination, you can still experience the Humanitarian XP magic on a Domestic Alternative trip. Regardless of where we go, we are determined to keep serving those who need us most.
Each Domestic Alternative trip will include the major elements of the Humanitarian XP methodology: a difficult but needed construction project, the chance to bond with 19 peers from your same faith, and the digital detox that allows you the space to consider whether the person you are becoming is consistent with who you want to be.
