Service Retreats of various lengths are a way for groups to experience the many issues contributing to poverty, to serve those affected and to take what they learned and address the issues in their own communities. Questions? Contact us here or call 612-276-1568.
Located near the Midtown Global Market our Retreat Center will be your home away from home during your retreat. The Retreat Center is a secure building with dormitory style rooms that can sleep up to 55 people. There are sitting areas and bathrooms with private showers on each floor.
We arrange meaningful service learning projects at organizations such as food shelves, shelters and other social service agencies. Retreat participants may serve at more than one location each day. Service projects will be coordinated between the UISR Program Coordinator and each group’s leader.
Participants make breakfast and pack a bag lunch at the retreat center. We provide dinner through a community organization or on-site. If you have particular snacks your group would like to bring you are welcome to do so. If you have special food requests (allergies, gluten-free, etc) please contact us.
Participants take part in interactive activities each day to explore the complexities of poverty and how they relate to issues of faith. These opportunities, combined with the hands-on learning that comes through service, will stretch participants and encourage them to think about how they can create change for their neighbors who are struggling.
Retreats are open to youth who have completed 6th – 12th grade, young adults, and adults of all ages. If you have a younger aged participant please call 612.276.1568 to inquire about options.
