Youth Summer Service Week
 

You don't have to go out of the country to help someone in need this summer.

There’s plenty of good work to do right here in town. Youth Summer Service Week (YSSW) provides area high school-aged youth with an affordable, local week-long urban mission experience each summer. A diverse cohort of youth participants learn together about social issues in our community and work with local agencies that are making a difference and helping our neighbors in need.

Students participating in the program will spend Monday through Friday on a supervised team working on a variety of service projects, talking with and learning from community leaders, dining together, and reflecting on the service work we do. Participants will also receive leadership and team-building training, and learn about housing, hunger, poverty, caring for the environment, and other issues facing the local community.
