YES (Youth Equipped to Serve) is a program of FOCUS North America and is coming to our community!
What is YES?
YES provides opportunities for junior high students, high school students, college students, and families to participate in formative weekends of service that aim to bridge the gap between the rich and the poor and bring participants to an awareness of Christ in themselves and others. Through this experience, we aim to identify and cultivate leadership gifts in trip participants, with the ultimate purpose being to raise up service leaders who will lead others in loving and serving our most needy neighbors in their own parishes and communities, and on future YES trips.
WHEN? Friday, April 28th – Sunday, April 30th, 2017
WHAT? A wonderful opportunity to serve and love the people of Chicago, IL.
WHO? 13 years old- College
WHERE? We will meet at 5pm on Friday and stay Friday and Saturday nights at All Saints Antiochian Orthodox Church: 4129 W Newport Ave, Chicago, IL 60641. The service learning weekend will come to a close following Liturgy on Sunday, April 30th.
COST? A registration gift of $150 a person will cover all trip expenses, make it possible for the YES Program to prepare and execute the trip, and enable our service team to meet the needs of those we serve.
