We had a blast at the Youth in Philanthropy Project.
We had 20 high school students from schools all over Fort Bend County come to the Day Center on January 13 to do a service project which was a collaboration between Fort Bend Family Promise and Missouri City Green. The kids were divided into four teams and paired with a family from the FBFP program for a series of "Family Feud" challenges.They learned about the issue of homelessness, how to properly plant trees and more. Thanks to the George Foundation for sponsoring the YIP Program and exposing students to the joys and challenges of volunteering. It was colder than we'd have liked and started raining before the day ended!
