Weekend Youth Service Round-up for January 30th, 2011

With the snow that fell two weeks ago melted, our students were back in action across the nation with service projects. Here’s an update from some of our regions:

San Francisco: Bay Area youth spent Saturday learning about human trafficking through a partnership with Girls Inc. They ended the day by raising awareness for the issue by writing chalk messages on sidewalks!

Chicago: Students rose early to distribute food from a pantry to those in need.

Detroit: At Detroit’s 2nd annual service party, students made friendship bracelets and cards of encouragement for homeless teens. Other students prepared for their school-building trip to Haiti in two weeks. Still others made catnip toys for cats at the Michigan Humane Society.

Philadelphia: buildOn students, along with regional ministries, served dinner to over 200 homeless individuals.

South Connecticut: Students enjoyed an indoor service fair where they made issues posters to hang at their schools and worked on other projects!
