Immanuel Youth Service Experience in Philadelphia
When: Saturday, July 20 - Friday, July 26
Where: We will do our service work through St. James School [https://stjamesphila.org/] and our accommodations will be at Chamounix Mansion [https://philahostel.org]
What: We will assist the school in any way that is helpful and could include: build garden beds; provide a one-day fun day for the local community children; clean up around the school grounds; work with or tutor students; talk with community neighbors about the school.
Who: Any youth who has completed 6th grade and up. We will be joined by youth and their adult chaperones from Ascension Church, Gaithersburg, MD.
Cost: We have a generous gift from the Outreach Committee that will cover up to 10 youth except for two lunches on the road and personal spending money. If we go above 10 we will address the cost per participant at that time.
How: Contact the Rev. John Hogg, email@example.com with questions or to register.
Other: Youth will be supervised and chaperoned throughout the entire trip. They will be allowed to bring their phones and other electronic devices (however at certain times they'll be asked to put them away when necessary). At right is a rough outline of the trip:
