Learn About Youth at Harvard Avenue

June 23-28, 2024, our high school students are headed to St. Louis, Missouri to partner with Be the Neighbor Ministries. Our students will learn to put faith into action through service and justice in ways that are relational, sustainable and dignity-affirming. Groups will work with and learn from a variety of organizations and people with whom we partner year-round. Each day includes a morning gathering with a biblical reflection and videos to learn more about poverty relief and the effects of poverty on children and about the partner organizations for the day, hands-on activities with non-profits, connect time and free time.
