Originally printed 3/7/2013 (Issue 2110 - Between The Lines News)
If you or someone you know between the ages of 12 and 19, is interested in an alternative spring break experience in New Orleans Lower 9th Ward, then Dedicated To Make A Change wants to hear from you. Students will be travelling by train departing on Amtrack March 26 through April 7 and again on April 26 through May 5. This is a youth planned service work experience where housing will be dorm style and meals will be in a group setting. The teams work every day but Sunday.
Educator Gail Wolkoff says, " In 2010, I created an all inclusive youth organization, Dedicated to Make a Change. Our mission is to connect youth with the world to promote peace, greater understanding and a love of learning. We provide an experiential learning environment to learn justice, diversity, poverty, and social responsibility." Anyone interested can contact her at http://www.dedicatedtomakeachange.com.
