Why do people go hungry in the richest country in the world?
Why is poverty so hard to overcome, and what can you do to help?
Is there a difference between serving others and serving God?
Come along on the Service Learning Trip to NYC this February to find the answers to these and other questions!
This year we have partnered with Youth Service Opportunities Project and together we will:
THE YSOP MISSION
YSOP engages youth, college students, and adults in meaningful service experiences through an innovative program that combines an orientation to the issues, hands-on volunteer work, and reflection. Using orientation and reflection to frame their service experiences, YSOP inspires our participants to broaden their perspectives and become engaged citizens.
- Cook lunch at a soup kitchen and break bread with their guests
- Learn about immigration and poverty with YSOP and at Ellis Island National Park
- Seek out New York pizza and bagels and maybe even Magnolia Bakery cupcakes
- And we'll do our best to see some New York sites like Times Square and Central Park.
