GREENSBORO IS IN NEED OF HELP THOUGH. 1 OUT OF EVERY 5 PEOPLE LIVE BELOW THE NATIONAL POVERTY LINE. WITHIN THE GUILFORD COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM, 65 PERCENT OF STUDENTS LIVE IN POVERTY AND 48 PERCENT OF 3RD GRADERS READ BELOW THEIR GRADE LEVEL.

How You Help!
During your time in Greensboro you will be partnering with local organizations who are working to alleviate poverty in its many forms among the the homeless, the poor, and children. Projects might include preparing and serving food for the homeless, working in a day shelter, volunteering at a kids camp, helping students with reading or helping to repair broken homes. Each day you will have opportunities to build relationships with those you are assisting as well as applying what you learn each night.
Since For You Ministries believes in working hand in hand with those in need, we do our best to put you on worksites where you work directly with those in need.
