The New York State Council of Churches will sponsor a trip for high school youth to the Youth Leadership Forum at the United Nations, Tuesday, Feb. 20-Thursday, Feb. 22. The focus will be “Reclaiming the Voice of Resistance.” A seminar will take place at the Church of the Covenant, down the street from the United Nations and the students will also tour the UN. The seminar is designed to equip youth to be advocates for change.
The cost of $400 includes lodging for two nights, travel by chartered bus, plus two lunches and breakfasts. Participants will need money for dinner Tuesday and Wednesday (unless they opt to join the group attending a Broadway and dinner in Times Square Wednesday, which will be an additional charge).
