St. Ignatius College PrepJune 28th, 2011
by Angelina Cahalan
For almost 20 years now St. Ignatius College Prep has sent a group of rising seniors to spend two weeks living and working in the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco. This year’s group arrived yesterday morning. They are living in a small room at a local non-profit. They all sleep in one small room on mats on the floor and have small kitchen to cook and eat their meals. They have a small budget to cover their food and other necessities. For many of the students this is their first taste of living on their own; doing their own shopping, cooking and laundry. They spend their days with St. Anthony’s Justice Education Program; doing service in the Tenderloin and participating in educational workshops about poverty and homelessness.
They will be writing about their experience right here on our blog.
Follow-them on their journey of service and solidarity over the next two weeks.
