Youth Homeless Experince
Wednesday, April 4 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$5.00
5th Annual Youth Homeless Experience!
Students 2nd to 12th grade from scouts and other local youth groups will build their own shelter for the night. They will learn about hunger and homelessness in our area from those involved in agencies and organizations which support people in these situations. Local community leaders will speak about homelessness and hunger and participants will complete activities focusing around the issues. The event will end in the morning with an Oxfam Hunger Banquet breakfast. In addition to the $5/participant entry fee, each person is also asked to bring a personal care item or non-perishable food item to help our assisting organizations. The new locations will provide a wide variety of places to build your shelter. More details to come in the confirmation packet when you register!
Trusted and trained adult volunteer leaders will participate in the activities and provide supervision for the evening.
