We all have so much to be thankful for - food, shelter, an education, and all of the other luxuries we possess. There are others who lack the basic necessities to go about their lives in order to reach their full potential. Each of us were put on this earth for a reason. Come learn about how you can make a positive impact on our world through your actions. Together we can make a difference!

Requirements for trips, retreats, and special events

Youth group at St. Robert Bellarmine Parish offers a great variety of mission trips, retreats, and special events. This includes the Winnebago/Walthill Mission Trip, seasonal retreats/camps, NCYC, and more! All these opportunities do have various requirements that need to be completed in order to participate in the experience. The requirements are listed below, along with the reasoning behind each requirement:

1) Regularly participate in youth group meetings: Youth group allows high school students to get to know each other weekly through interactive activities. When venturing on other special excursions, we want to make sure all participants on the trip have a good friendship in order to promote a great experience. 

2) Participate in youth volunteer opportunities: Throughout the year, our youth group helps with various organizations and events at the parish. It is important that the youth of the parish give back through volunteer hours to the organizations that support our youth group mission and programs. This includes, but not limited to; the Volleyball Tournament, Knights of Columbus events, Golf Committee, Ladies's Guild events, and more!

3) Be involved with major youth group fundraisers and events: Throughout the year, the youth group hosts major fundraising events. It is important to participate in various events in order to participate in the special trips and retreats that the youth group hosts. These events allow our youth group to keep costs low for mission trips, retreats, and special events. This includes, but not limited to; yard/house clean up days, Vacation Bible School, Parent's Day Out, The Box Project, Lenten Pasta Dinner, and more!

All these listed above are requirements to participate in the special trips, retreats, and events that happen in youth group. All opportunities are advertised through our monthly e-newsletter and our website under the "Get Involved" tab.

Youth Leader Project

The Youth Leader Project is a new and exciting opportunity for the high school students to dive into their own social justice passions. Each student or two student team is asked to pick a social justice topic that they would like to invest in. They will have to do research over the next month, developing a case on why they should be granted sponsorship for their project. Research includes but not limited to; root causes of social justice topic, why we are called as Catholics to address this issue, how it applies to Catholic Social Teachings, and so on. This project also asks to each student or team to organize and execute a project, campaign, excursion, or learning opportunity for youth group members to fully engage in this experience. Matters of timelines, lessons, budget, and proposed agendas will need to be presented as a part of the application process. 

In March, each student will have created a poster presentation to present to the parish, in hopes of receiving votes for their project to win the sponsorship. Top finalists will present a full scale presentation to selected members on the Youth Leader Project Committee. 

This is a great opportunity for youth to learn leadership and work-place skills, build their resume, as well as dive deeper into seeking social justice as a young Catholic in the church. 

OH, the places SRB-Youth go!

SRB-Youth have continuously been doing good in the community, and not just through our parish! Youth in high school and young adults in college have ventured near and far to take on new experiences, serve different communities, and learn about new cultures.
