In April, the DioPA Youth are changing it up a bit. We're adding a mission component and celebrating Earth Day with Dinner Church in the Garden hosted by St. Luke's, Germantown. We will be helping move and install their garden they use to help feed the community. Please note the different day and time! Dinner Church in the Garden will take place from 3-6pm on Saturday, April 27. Youth are encouraged to bring a friend and come break bread with us as we provide a safe space for all to share ideas, struggles, hopes, and aspirations.
Saturday, May 4th
8:30 am – 4:00 pm
St Luke's Episcopal Church 5421 Germantown Avenue Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA 19144
Register now at diopa.org Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis. Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for those who regularly interact with young people. The course introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a five (5)-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations.
"ATTENTION ST. LUKE'S COLLEGE STUDENTS and PARENTS:
A member of our parish, Barbara S. Moore, who has an extensive human resource background working for national/international nonprofit organizations has agreed to work with our college students on resume preparation and interviewing techniques. This is to assist them in exploring summer employment opportunities. Among Ms. Moore's experiences she served as Assistant National Executive Director, Human Resources for the National Office of the YWCA of the U.S.A. and Director of Human Resources for USO World Headquarters. In these roles she was responsible for recruiting and placing staff in headquarters, stateside and overseas offices in Europe and the Far East. In addition, Ms. Moore has also agreed to conduct a workshop on interviewing techniques. It is her hope to have dialogue with these students during their upcoming Spring break. Ms. Moore will also reach out to local businesses to see if there are any summer job opportunities.
If you know of any of our college students who may be interested in pursuing summer employment opportunities, please have them email the church office or pick up a form in the narthex of the church.
Thank you and we look forward to working with our students.
