The schedule of presenters and activities for the day includes:

- Creative devotions led by the Rev. Dr. Susanna Singer of CDSP and the Rev. Canon Julia McCray-Goldsmith, Canon for Discipleship for the Episcopal Diocese of California.
- Keynote presentation on privilege and power in service projects by Anne Clarke, Lifelong Christian Formation Coordinator for The Episcopal Diocese of Northern California.
- Activities and resources designed for a youth retreat or congregational discussion on how many of us benefit from systems rooted in inequality, oppression and racism, and how one can become an ally of those who are harmed by these systems, led by Samantha Haycock, Director of Children and Youth Ministries at Christ Church, Alameda.

Attendees will go home from the day with new tools and resources to help youth and congregation, as a whole, discuss and reflect upon the ways that mission trips and service projects can raise difficult issues of inequality and racism, and ways in which our faith and the teachings of Jesus can help us respond.
