Durham's First Presbyterian Church and Society of Friends (a.k.a. Quakers) are sponsoring a secular Service Week for high-school students.
According to co-coordinator Rob Lamme, participating kids can work on home repairs for needy families and volunteer at human-service agencies; and get acquainted with some grownups prominent in town and other teenagers they might not otherwise know.
The program is open to any student in grades 9 through 12. Cost is $250, which includes transportation and meals; some scholarship help is available. Contact Lamme at 630-3375, firstname.lastname@example.org; or Christyn Klinck, (919) 402-1951, email@example.com.
