HXP Financial Aid Program 2024

HXP Financial Aid Program

We are beyond grateful for the donors who have made it possible to announce the launch of, HXP’s Financial Aid Program. This program will provide opportunities for parents and teenagers who are experiencing significant economic difficulties to attend a 2024 HXP Trip. 
 We understand that many teens and parents are interested in the unique service experience offered at HXP but are limited due to the financial commitment. To help alleviate the cost burden, applications are now open to the HXP Financial Aid program. 
 While the majority of our Builders earn the money themselves to attend an HXP trip, the Financial Aid Program is intended to help teenagers and parents whose jobs help with family expenses and who would not be able to attend an HXP trip without Financial Aid. If you have someone in mind that you think might qualify for the Financial Aid program, please send them the application below. 
  • Youth Builders: Teenagers 14-19 years old during the duration of their HXP Trip
  • Domestic Trips are for Builders 14-16, International Trips are for Builders 16-19
