Alumni Service and Immersion Program to New York City

Wednesday, May 20-Sunday May 24, 2015. The schedule is very flexible!

Campus Ministry’s Alumni Service-Immersion Program is taking place this year in New York City in an effort to draw and attract new and different alumni.  The program is open to alumni, their families and friends.

Our community service work will be with Covenant House (Insert link here) near Times Square. Covenant House shelters over 60,000 homeless and trafficked youth each year. .  The site in New York City shelters over 370 youth every night. 

There will be time for personal discernment, to connect with God as well as time to take in the sights and culture of New York City in the evenings. .

Our schedule is flexible and there are two options on how you may participate in the program:

Option 1:

Option 2:

  • DAILY COMMUTE: (NYC or metro area residents) Commute from home and serve with us. (see schedule below)
