World Changers youth program working on projects in Milton

Jun. 19, 2013 @ 11:37 PM

MILTON -- A group of 78 students from throughout the United States and Canada converged on Milton this week as part of the World Changers project.

The students, between 12- and 18-years-old, arrived in Milton last Sunday, and they will return to their respective hometowns on Saturday, June 22, after participating in a series of community service projects and hosting community building events.

New Heights Church in Milton partnered with World Changers to host the week of events.

On Wednesday night, the group hosted a community night at West Virginia Pumpkin Park's music hall.

There also will be block parties with inflatable play equipment and free food, games and prizes Thursday and Friday. There will be two parties each day for the remainder of the group's stay. Two of the parties will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at April Dawn Park, and the other parties will be from 2 to 4 p.m. at Hidden Brook Townhouses and Apartments.
