Archbishop Mitty High School students visit L.A. Council

To help bring the classroom to life and learn more about today's social issues, 25 senior-bound students from Archbishop Mitty High School in San Jose are currently on a nine day trip in California to witness reality up-close and personal.

Today the students stopped by the Society's Cardinal Manning Center in Skid Row, where half the group participated in an art project and helped prepare meals for the homeless, while the other half attended the Council's store in Los Angeles to help sort books and assist in the production department.

According to ethics teacher Kevin Dunn, this is the first time he and his students have come to the Society in Los Angeles. This is the third time Dunn has brought a class to L.A.,as this trip serves as the culmination of his student's school project.

Other highlights of the trip have included serving the poor in San Francisco and learning about farm workers, immigrants and migration in the Salinas area.
