The group worked three days in our breakfast program, one afternoon with Habitat and one afternoon with People to People.  They met with Awareness in Motion and visited MOCA house.

We at North Street Mission want groups to have a meaningful week and hope that they continue to go on mission trips in the future.  Part of this process involves getting feedback from the groups.  Here is a summary of the feedback from the College of Wooster group:
