Are you a high school aged youth looking for something to do in February and/or April?
Do you know a teenager who might be interested in meeting new people and getting involved in their community?
GLU is a free program for high school aged youth. Through GLU, students from across New York participate in a week-long program that combines direct community service projects with educational workshops, speakers, and facilitated group dialogues and reflections. Each session considers a particular social justice theme and incorporates related community service projects with partners in Washington Heights and Inwood. In addition to the service, Centro Altagracia de Fe y Justicia provides necessary background information, global and local context, and perspectives from local experts to stimulate fruitful dialogue and reflection on how to nurture an ongoing civic engagement in our communities and a sustained commitment to social justice.
The February session (February 16-21) will address hunger and food justice and the April session (April 6-11) will focus on environmental justice. Each day begins and ends at the Centro’s office at 511 W. 164th Street, New York, NY 10032. Breakfast and lunch are provided by the Centro.
