Alumni Service-Immersion to NYC

Alumni Service and Immersion Program to New York City

Wednesday, May 20-Sunday May 24, 2015. (You may opt to arrive in NYC early on Thursday, May 21. Flexible schedule)

Participants will be living in community in Queens, NY and serving with Covenant House in the Times Square section of NYC.  Covenant House shelters over 60,000 homeless and trafficked youth each year.  They have 21 shelters in 6 countries.  The site in NYC shelters over 370 youth every night.  

Our service will be hands-on work.  Canisius alumni will connect with the residents by serving on a career development panel and by mentoring them in conversations.   In addition we will serve meals in their dining room as well as other activities.  This program will allow time to slow down from the regular pace in life and live out the Gospel values of serving those most in need.  There will be time for personal discernment, to connect with God as well as take in the sights and culture of New York City.  There will be a balance of service, immersion, community, prayer and reflection.

Cost: Participants are responsible for their own transportation to New York plus $250 program fee. Lodging and most meals are included.
