Application Deadline: Summer Youth Leaders Program
Catholic Charities invites you to apply for our inaugural Summer Youth Leaders Program!
This immersive and experiential week-long service program for rising high school juniors and seniors is designed to introduce students to the work we do at Catholic Charities. Throughout the week, students will visit and serve at several Catholic Charities sites to learn about the range of services provided to our clients. The students will have opportunities to broaden their understanding of the needs and characteristics of the people accessing Catholic Charities’ services through hands-on volunteering, conversations with agency leaders, and activities led by program staff. In addition, students will get an inside look at the operations of a large non-profit and what it takes to provide quality service.
A typical day in this program will include traveling to a Catholic Charities program site in the morning to learn from the staff about their work. The students will have the chance to volunteer at that site. In the afternoon, we invite the students to participate in leadership building activities. At the end of the program students are encouraged to design a service project to implement at their respective schools.
The program will run from Monday, June 24th to Friday, June 28th from 9:00am – 5:00pm each day. Youth Leaders will start and end their days at 924 G St NW, Washington, DC 20001 and will travel as a group throughout the day.
