YOUTH ON THE MOVE
In 2012, we launched Youth on the Move, outreach programs for children and youth who are underserved in Marin.
Youth Service Team (YST) has reached 50 youth in 2018, providing many hours of service opportunities. Youth have served with a wide variety of organizations, including Marin Parks, the Milo Foundation, preparation of meals for the Mill Street Shelter, and the Rotating Emergency Shelter.
Our after-school enrichment program at Short Elementary School in the Gerstle Park neighborhood of San Rafael: Our volunteers work with a part-time coordinator and teachers to offer programs in cooking/nutrition, gardening, movement/exercise, art and science every Wednesday afternoon. We are always seeking volunteers to work with these delightful and bright children – if you are interested, please call Leslie Purdy through the church office at 415 456 6760. Also, please consider donating to this program which is funded from funds outside the church budget.
Young Moms of Marin has helped many young mothers deal with financial, social and personal challenges. and now has a small grant from the County to expand. FPCSR continues to sponsor YMM meetings at the church and helps with occasional gifts and contributions.
