Life in the “big city” is not always easy. According to the Heartland Alliance, 11.3% of the region’s population is living in poverty. The most vulnerable amongst them are children. You can help!
During the week-long service immersion participants explore issues of urban poverty, justice and the reality of oppression. Through various service partnerships with local agencies and a school participants challenge stereotypes and fears and break down barriers that “protect” us from the unknown. Participants meet people from organizations working to make a difference, have cross-cultural experiences and engage in daily communal reflection.
Educating hearts and minds … to build community, do justice, live simply, engage spiritually.
