Youth Volunteers Visit
March 18, 2020
Luck of the Irish
The first Wednesday night of March was another fun-filled evening at Brooklyn Park! After a festive activity of making St. Patrick’s Day cards and door signs, to bring the individuals laughter and luck…the group ended with the monthly favorite activity, bowling! We are extremely grateful to Church of the Open Door for being our community partner and good neighbor!
This 2019/2020 school year marks the ninth year that Homeward Bound has partnered with wonderful youth for craft projects and activities. From November through May, youth with the Next Gen program at Church of the Open Door in Maple Grove visit Brooklyn Park the first Wednesday of the month. The youth program serves about 200 students in grades 7 – 12 this school year. They rotate volunteer sites each month, exposing them to a variety of experiences of giving back to the community. A new group gets to visit Brooklyn Park each month, extending the opportunity of visiting with the talented individual Homeward Bound, to all the youth by programs end. Check out all the this year’s Next Generation photos!
