Inner-City Outreach (ICO) trips involve Grove City College students travelling to cities throughout the United States, as well as the world, to minister to others and share the Gospel. Trips are open to all current Grove City College students.

Historically, Inner City Outreach (ICO) trips began at Grove City College in 1988 because students were missions and service driven.  Students traveled to cities in the U.S. during January and May intersessions as well as during Easter breaks, for the purpose of ministering and serving the needs of children and adults at specific ministry sites.  As the program developed and grew, students also began to travel to international sites for their ICO trips.  Today, the program has grown to over 15 trips annually, with almost half of these trips traveling to international destinations. 

ICO trips are student-initiated and student-led. Grove City College provides training and resources for the leaders of each approved trip, supplemental insurance for international trip participants, and partial funding for those trips that apply.
