This fall break, in conjuction with 9/11 Remembrance, we will be taking our talents to New York City and Washington D.C. We will be working with the Youth Service Opportunities Project in both locations. They have an office in each city so both trips will be doing the same service.
Monday night- Students will prepare dinner for local homeless individuals and then sit down and eat with them. You will have an opportunity to hear about their experiences. A speaker will come in to speak with everyone.
Tuesday- You will go into the community and potentially work at a food kitchen or some other location to combat homelessness and hunger. Return to SRU around 9:30pm.
The 9/11 component will be presenting a signed flag to government officials. We are unsure as to who this may be at each location; but we are working to have a concrete answer.
