High school students from the Outreach Community Center in Carol Stream and Puente del Pueblo recently embarked on their spring break college tour. This year the group visited Ohio State University, Marshall University, Wingate University, Duke University, and Howard University.
The annual Christmas Store, which allows qualifying families to select gifts and purchase them at an affordable price, was a great success thanks to volunteers and those who donated!
Since Puente del Pueblo's inception 10 years ago, it's transformed the West Chicago community. Find out more about this partnership between Outreach and Wheaton Bible Church, how Puente del Pueblo has grown, and how it's made a difference in the lives of individuals, families and the community.
Eight years ago, when Puente del Pueblo began their after-school program, Barbie and Brisa were 2nd and 3rd graders, struggling at school and trying to learn English as a second language. This summer, the students turned into facilitators.
Outreach's summer programs have Olympic fever! Students entering 5th – 8th grades from across our sites came together for a Summer Games event that included kickball, soccer and basketball.
