|YMCA presents Teen World Service informational meeting|
|Wednesday, January 01, 2014 9:08 PM|
LIMA — The Lima Family YMCA is pleased to offer teens that have finished 9-11th grade by June a service-learning experience in June.
This program is designed to promote leadership development through service, youth-to-youth interaction and environmental experiences. Teens will participate in leadership training and then work with the Yellowstone Association in a 10-day experience in Yellowstone National park from June 21-July 1.
It is educational in nature and requires a high level of commitment as each participant will be challenged mentally, physically and socially. By the very nature of this experience, teens must be able to exercise a higher degree of decision-making and accept responsibility for their own actions. There will be an informational meeting at the YMCA Annex at 6 p.m. Jan. 14 in the Walnut Room. Applications can be picked up at the Lima YMCA and are due Feb. 8. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact Katie Mefferd at 419-223-6045, ext. 116.
