Youth Go for a Day

Interested in The GO Project, but not quite ready or available to commit to a full program?

Wanting to spend a day with likeminded young people from across the country?

Looking tlearn, serve in your communityand gain volunteer hours? 

Attending The GO Project for the first time is exciting, but we recognize that it can be quite daunting. We also know that everyone’s circumstances are different, and spending 811 days away from work, extracurricular commitments, and friends and family might not be possible. This is why we are now offering GO for a Day, an opportunity for 1319 yearolds to attend a GO Project program for one day and join the other fulltime participants in all aspects of the program.

As a GO for a Day participant, youth will partake in all elements of a “typical” day with The GO Project, including mission work, preparing and enjoying meals, and fun activities

If you or a young person in your life might beinterested in GO for a Day, please contact us at thegoproject@islingtonunited.org
