December 1 Registration Deadline for 2018 Youth UN Trip

The New York State Council of Churches is sponsoring a leadership forum for high school youth in February 2018, during school vacation week. Once again, the New York State Council of Churches will sponsor a trip for senior high youth to the United Nations. We will travel to NYC on Tuesday, February 20 and return home Thursday, February 22, 2018. (Note the change in days of the week for our 2018 trip.) The event flyer and an application form can be found at the links below. The focus of our time together will be “Reclaiming the Voice of Resistance.”  We will study at the Church of the Covenant, near the Hilton Hotel where we are staying, and tour the UN. The seminar is designed to equip youth to be advocates for change.

The cost of $400 covers lodging, travel by chartered bus, 2 lunches and two breakfasts. Students will need to bring money for dinner Monday and Tuesday (unless they opt to join the group for a Broadway show and dinner in Times Square on Tuesday), which will be an additional charge.  Commuters from the NYC area without lodging, breakfast or bus transport, cost is $225. Applications and a $50 deposit are due by December 1, 2017. For additional information, please contact Christy D’Ambrosio at christy@firstpresalbany.org or 518-423-4763.
