JOURNEY FOR CHANGE 2: EMPOWERING YOUTH THROUGH GLOBAL SERVICE LIVE FROM SOUTH AFRICA NOW!
Journey for Change 2: Empowering Youth Through Global Service is a unique and innovative partnership between The Angelrock Project and The Salvation Army Greater New York that takes thirty at-risk youth from Brooklyn, New York to South Africa for two weeks of global service. After the success of Journey for Change: Empowering Youth Through Global Service in 2008, the program has since expanded to recruit children from the Bushwick, Brownsville, and Bedford-Stuyvesant Salvation Army Community Centers. Additionally, fifteen college age mentors have been selected through partnerships at NYU, Pratt Institute, and Medgar Evers College.
