Social Action Group

Saint John Bosco is calling the young people of our parish (Grades 9-12) to step up to challenges in our community and help us make a difference. Throughout the year, our projects support the homeless, elderly, needy, and children in our community and surrounding communities who need our care.

Major annual projects include: Abraham's Tent, Columbus House, Midnight Run, Women's Shelter, Community Dining Room, CRS Rice Bowl*, and Habitat for Humanity.

*Catholic Relief Services Parish Ambassadors Corps (CRS PAC) - Currently, 7 teens in our Social Action Youth Group are also trained global ambassadors. Parish ambassadors are individuals with a passion for global solidarity who encourage their parishes to respond to Catholic social teaching by engaging their fellow parishioners to participate in CRS Rice Bowl and at least two other global solidarity initiatives annually.

 

Students interested in any of the above are encouraged to attend our monthly meetings in order to participate in any of our many projects. For more information, please contact Jenny Smith at [email protected].
