This month, Outreach Sunday will support the Latin American Youth Center (LAYC). LAYC helps disadvantaged youth in Maryland and Washington DC to successfully transition to adulthood through programs that address their social, academic, and career needs. But they cannot achieve any of their goals without the support of donors.
Your donations this Outreach Sunday will allow LAYC to serve more youth and continue to deliver the following effective and transformative youth programs:
- Homework tutoring, after school programs, GED exam prep
- Job placement service and youth internships
- Safe housing for homeless and runaway youth
- Substance abuse treatment and health education
Several St. John’s parishioners are involved with LAYC and have completed the required 15 hours of training for the LAYC host home families program. Host home families provide shelter for runaway youth 12-17 for a short term. Host home families assist youth who are experiencing temporary conflict at home and need a safe and loving home for a transitory period. Ask them how you can get involved with LAYC’s programs.
Please join us on July 28th as we support this worthy group! Checks should be made out to “St. John’s Episcopal Church” with “LAYC” in the memo line.
