Infusion is our servant leadership-based program for high school students from diverse backgrounds. Students engage in community by study, reflection, and direct interaction around issues of social justice. The program runs for 9 months during the school year.
As the students interact with the community on various levels, they are led in processing their insights; they decide each year's theme, plan and implement strategies.
Students also learn about themselves. They explore how each person’s personality, faith and life experience can make a difference.
Students will meet people from all walks of life-different faiths, cultures, races, and social and economic backgrounds. They will work as a team in looking for ways to bring people and communities together as they work to empower others and bring about positive changes.
