Service camp and immersion experience (Y.E.S.) returns! Local youth invited to participate
Youth Encounter Service, or Y.E.S., is back! Y.E.S. is a weeklong, local service camp and immersion experience sponsored by the Diocese of Saginaw from June 19 to 24.
Y.E.S. gives high school students an opportunity to learn about and fight poverty, while reaching out to the poor.
Youth spend five days of their summer vacation sprucing up yards and making minor repairs to homes in the city of Saginaw. In addition to hands-on work, participants learn more about Catholic Social teaching.
Part of the week is spent volunteering at local outreach organizations such as the East Side Soup Kitchen, City Rescue Mission and Mustard Seed Shelter. Evening activities include guest speakers, prayer and reflection on the experiences of the day.
Do you know a high school student or someone entering high school in the fall who might be interested?
