Hunger and Homeless
Outreach - Washington D.C.
January 15, 2017 - January 21, 2017
Application deadline is October 26th at 4pm.
America is one of the world's wealthiest nations, especially when it comes to our agricultural production, yet enough food goes to waste each day to feed every hungry adult and child living in the nation. Each night some five million children go to bed hungry. As many as 3.5 million people each year have no bed to call their own, as they experience homelessness.
Participants will have an opportunity to explore the root causes and efforts to improve the hunger and homelessness situation in American through a series of site visits, guest speakers and discussions. Participants will be volunteering at soup kitchens and with various organizations that specialize in assisting and empowering the homeless population.
Participants will also have the opportunity to attend the Presidential Inauguration on the National Mall.
The trip cost is $300. Financial aid is available.
