Young Neighbors in Action
Neighbors in Action
Young Neighbors in Action is an exciting, integrated service-learning
experience for parish and school teams of older youth and adults. Young
Neighbors is more than a week of service. It is an extended program that
provides the experiences, skills and learning needed to make change possible.
Students from St. Peter-Marian have been
to Yakima, Washington, the Winnebago Indian Reservation in
Nebraska, Washington, DC, San Antonio, Texas and El Paso, Texas/Juarez, Mexico
in the past few years.
This past summer our students did an environmental justice week in Green Bay,
WI. Imagine our
students have even paid to do important works of mercy.
They lived in community for the week, and worked at the same work site
each day of the week. This was undoubtedly a formative activity for them, not
to mention a lot of fun. For more
