Discover Groups - Los Angeles

-- Los Angeles, California

Weekend or Week-Long term
Ages 13+



​Discover Group participants spend time serving with a variety of local agencies and ministries and learning through evening speakers and activities. The experience is about more than preparing a meal at a soup kitchen or playing with children at a day camp. It is an opportunity to work alongside local community members, to learn from local leaders, and to listen to the stories of neighbors, clients, and churches.
