Ten Rochester-area high-school students spent July 12-15 learning about the city's poverty issues and volunteering for Habitat for Humanity under the guidance of Sister Sue Hoffman, high-school and college program coordinator for Flower City Habitat for Humanity. The third-annual Flower City Habitat summer youth-immersion program aimed to help students better understand themselves and their community. Sister Hoffman, two students and one Habitat homeowner spoke to the Catholic Courier about the experience. (Click here to view more photos from this event and/or buy prints.)
