Area youth to embark on service tourThe Fargo Moorhead Chamber of Commerce Youth Leadership Program is celebrating its 15-year anniversary with a ribbon- cutting ceremony, local service projects and a service tour of Minnesota starting Monday.
Sixty area high school students will board two buses headed for different parts of Minnesota on a five-day “Pay It Forward” tour.
Youth Leadership students, their parents, program sponsors and chamber members are gathering at 12:30 p.m. Monday in Moorhead’s Hjemkomst Center parking lot to rally and board the buses.
Students are starting their tour with local service projects around the F-M area. They will work with Fargo Housing Authority at two locations, painting and repairing playground equipment for low-income housing. There will also be a service project in conjunction with YWCA Cass Clay geared toward helping low income populations.
