July 9-13 Young People Paint BirminghamJuly 9-13
Youth entering 7th-9th grades are invited to join us for a weeklong work experience in Birmingham’s West End neighborhoods. For the last 20 years, young people in our diocese have had hands on service experience scraping and painting houses for homeowners who cannot afford to pay for this work to be done. During the evenings, the youth participate in a program that will help them learn more about poverty and how we are called to respond as Christians. St. Stephen’s, Birmingham will serve as a home base for meals, program and sleeping. Entering 12th graders and recent High school graduates are eligible to serve as a Counselor in Training.
