Camp Power is a summer program created to address the issues of increased youth crime and child hunger in University Village during the summer months. This is a collaborative effort between NIU, University Village and many DeKalb community partners.
Camp Power provides a structured outlet for youth during the day – Monday through Thursday – through Aug. 7. The camp provides tutoring, mentoring, recreation, field trips, nutritional education and healthy lunches for the kids who participate.
This initiative needs many volunteers throughout the summer. For a description of the volunteer opportunities, see the sign-up form at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f49aaae23a3f85-university. Any help you can give is sincerely appreciated.
