Overview

The UW Alumni Project is geared towards volunteers who have a previous connection with the Ultimate Workout through personal experience or through the experience of a friend or loved one.

Volunteers on this project will be headed to La Paz, Bolivia where they will pour the foundation and assembling the metal structure for a new church for the 18 de Diciembre congregation. Pouring the foundation for a church is a lot of work! Digging ditches, mixing cement, and tying rebar cages make for a lot of sore muscles, but this work is imperative to the enduring strength of the building.

Depending on the number of volunteers on the project, there may also be opportunities to reach out to the community through community outreach and children’s ministry programs.
