The following is a sample schedule for a YES service-learning weekend.  The group will be oriented thoroughly on how to approach the people serve and how to best meet their needs.  Serving and loving children, working poor, seniors and the homeless community are often elements of our trip, along with becoming acquainted with how to make consistent commitments to the poor of our communities. The group will also be presented with many opportunities to gain a new perspective on the city and its people.
