Saturday, April 23rd — Community Garden Planters Construction
9:00am – 4:00pm
You Belong will be building garden planters for their upcoming community garden program. Projects will include assembling garden beds, moving soil, planting seed in indoor planters, and laying patio blocks for accessibility.
We are looking for small groups of folks to join our local volunteers to help us get our Accessible Community Garden started with a construction / prep day. The goal of the day is to build and prepare our garden planters so they are ready for planting in May. We will also plant a few seeds for our indoor planters. This is a great opportunity for people of all ages to come together and be part of making our world more accessible.

Number of team members needed: 2-12 individuals
Helpful skills to have: hammering, screw driving, cutting lumber / other materials, moving dirt in wheelbarrows, laying landscape / patio blocks, preparing indoor seed

Weekdays June 20th through July 8th — All Abilities Athletics Day Camp
You Belong is inviting individuals or teams that are interested in serving with our All Abilities Athletics Camp to consider a short-term missionary opportunity. At the camp, we will be teaching and competing in volleyball, basketball, football, and maybe more. This day camp is for all abilities and all ages (toddlers, grade school, teenagers, and adults) and will last three hours each day. Missionaries would be welcome to come for a single day (or several individual days) or to come for longer periods of time. Individuals that come for longer periods of time would be able to be involved in some of our other You Belong programs.
