There are two sessions, each lasting two weeks in June and July.
Week 1 of each session is designed to provide the "learning." We will spend the week gaining valuable background information on the topic, including touring community agencies and meeting with their staff. Week 2 is designed to provide "hands-on" service on the topic. For example, working in a community garden that has provided fresh food to a neighborhood.
At the completion of of each session, participants will receive a certificate of service.
- Session 1 - Poverty: June 17-28
- Session 2 - Inclusive Recreation: July 8-19
