YMP Summer Schedule

We are blessed to have parishes from our Archdiocese support our program this year and as they have in the many past years. We thank you for your support and dedication to our project.

Program Description

The Youth Migrant Project is a summer long experience that provides current junior high youth (incoming grades 6,7,8, and 9 depending on parish jr. high youth program norms) a unique and challenging opportunity to live in community and be of service to migrant families in the Skagit Valley.  Parish youth groups serve for a week at a time throughout June, July and August. Participant jobs include: assisting in the day care centers, working at the Tri-Parish Food Bank, visiting the migrant camps, and providing donations (procured through participant fees.)  A participant’s day also includes

prayer, community building, chores, and education about the needs of the poor.

St. Leo's Parish 

The youth of St. Leo's Parish have created an on-line journal to detail their mission experience at the Youth Migrant Project for the week of July 2, 2012.  The journal started in 2011 and continues with pictures and thoughts of the experience they had this year as well.
