We are not booking any groups for 2020, but we are hopeful to begin welcoming our first groups back beginning in March of 2021. Due to NY State’s travel restrictions, we will not be hosting groups from restricted states. You can find an updated list of those states here: https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory. While it is challenging to know when our Urban Immersion program will be back running at full capacity, we are still accepting bookings. We are able to book groups up to two years ahead of time, so feel free to reach out now to book your future experience with us. For a connection to NYC without the travel, check out our new virtual Urban Immersion curriculum available for purchase (above).
The Urban Immersion program is designed to offer groups a chance to learn, listen, and serve alongside one another in the heart of the quintessential urban environment, New York City. The goal is not only to offer volunteer opportunities, but also to challenge participants to ask difficult questions and explore together how our faith fits into this experience.
(Due to agency requirements, we request that participants be 16 years or older)
