In Our Own Backyard Summer Program
In Our Own Backyard Summer Program is an intense, eye-opening four day experience that explores poverty and faith in depth. The program includes service work, worship services, and discussion of faith and homelessness with a diverse group of selected high school students reflecting religious, socioeconomic, and cultural diversity in the Mecklenburg County area.
Participants are invited to join the Interfaith Youth Council at the conclusion of the program, so the learning experience can continue and friendships can endure.
