YCLS - Youth Challenged through Local Service is a short-term inner city mission for youth, in partnership with BridgeTown Ministries. This experience takes youth into some of the poorer areas of Portland serving people who have often been marginalized by society.
Dates: June 25–July 1 in Portland, Oregon, and Youth Yearly Meeting at George Fox University, July 22–27, 2012.
The program cost is $500 to cover both the cost of the YCLS program and the week of Youth Yearly Meeting (all lodging and meals included). Application deadline is April 15, 2012.
There is also a need for two adult team leaders to volunteer during the week of YCLS. These leaders will work alongside BridgeTown ministries and the YCLS team members during this important week in Portland, Oregon.
This week-long summer service experience in Portland is for all current high school students for the 2011–2012 school year. Contact Rachelle Staley, associate superintendent of youth and young adults, if you have questions about being a leader or team member: firstname.lastname@example.org or 503/476-9127.
Applications for the 2012 Team are now open!
