High school students spend day volunteering, learning

Through our Volunteer Services Program, coordinated by Sarah Zarcone, Resource Development Coordinator, New Avenues is fortunate to welcome students from many high schools throughout the year.

In February, we welcomed students from Lake Catholic High School and Notre Dame Cathedral Latin. Both student groups volunteered in our Day Services program. In March we welcomed students from Perry High School at our Perry Home.

The Lake Catholic volunteers helped make Valentines and a “love bug” craft project with participants of the program. The group of juniors from Notre Dame Cathedral Latin, who were participating in their Junior Social Justice Retreat, assisted with projects in the Community Relations Department in the morning and spent the rest of the day doing art projects, planning games and singing karaoke with participants of our Day Services program. The Perry High School volunteers ate dinner with the individuals who reside in our Perry Home and afterwards played games, put together puzzles, and have great conversations.

Many, many thanks!
