BJE Teen Service Corps "sold out"

Jun 22, 2016

BJE Teen Service Corps "sold out" its two week-long summer day camps that will engage 63 teens in community service and service learning centered on the theme, "Hunger and Poverty".  Campers volunteer their service and explore the many ways LA based organizations work to address these issues, followed by reflection activities led by Teen Service Corps educators.
