For the fourth year in a row, the Girls Scouts of NYPENN are teaming up with youth groups across central New York to teach kids about hunger and homelessness.
This event is organized by Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways, and brings together many different girls of all ages as well as adults. Lilyana Thornton and Irelynn Vollmer are Brownies and have both participated in the event previously. Kids who participate will come together with Girl Scouts and local youth groups to build their own shelter and participate in activities focused on issues of hunger and homelessness. The main goal is for children to learn how they can make a difference in their community.
The Youth Homelessness Experience takes place Friday, May 12 to Saturday, May 13 at the Auburn Correctional Training Center. The event is open to all youth grades 2-12 for a $5 donation and a personal care item to be donated. For more information, visit gsnypenn.org
