Service Learning trip to New Orleans
From the Wesleyan chapter of the Youth Coalition for Community Action:
"Join us for a 2 week service-learning trip to New Orleans.
Be a part of a national youth empowerment movement that starts in post-Katrina New Orleans, as residents try to rebuild their communities through a massive food security project. Get trained as a youth organizer and gain skills that you can use to solve important issues in your own community. Learn about urban farming, community organizing, and environmental justice issues. You will get to farm, rebuild, organize, and work with other young people from the area, and meet other awesome people from Wes! And the best part is, you can still have a summer job because our trips are early! And if you want to work during commencement, you can, and still go on the second trip!"
Group 1: May 20th - June 3rd
Group 2: June 4th - June 18th
