Youth Encounter Service

This week-long service camp and immersion experience gives high school students an opportunity to learn about and fight poverty, while reaching out to the poor. Each June, youth spend five days of their summer vacation sprucing up yards and making minor repairs to several homes selected in the city of Saginaw. In addition to mowing lawns, trimming bushes and painting, Youth Encounter Service participants learn more about Catholic Social teaching. They also spend part of the week volunteering at various outreach organizations in the community. Evening activities include guest speakers, prayer and reflection on the experiences of the day. If you would like to get involved or learn more about Y.E.S., you may contact us.
