Notre Dame High School students take the Urban Plunge

Students from Notre Dame High School (NDHS) in St. Louis immersed themselves in the SSND mission when students took part in the Urban Plunge program at Elm Grove, Wisconsin, this past June. The Urban Plunge program exposes participants to social justice issues through discussions, presentations and one-to-one experiences within the city of Milwaukee. Since the program lessons are tailored to participants , NDHS chose homelessness, racism, hunger and immigration.

Students at NDHS take on the Urban Plunge in Milwakee, Wis.Activities included sharing a meal with the homeless and homeless vets, shopping on a budget with food stamps, working at a food bank, tutoring people studying for their citizenship tests, and going to an intergenerational center where students worked with children and adults. Students also had lunch with the sisters at Elm Grove, after which they took a tour of Notre Dame of Elm Grove, visited Mother Caroline’s grave and went to Mount Mary University.
