Summer PN is a different experience. The program keeps the goals that PN pursues during the year, bit adjusts it for a 12-week program. With Summer PN, you have the chance to pursue intentional community outside of the typical academic year, as well as ensures a year-round partnership between our program and the communities of Grand Rapids. Many Grand Rapids neighborhoods come alive in the summer.
The mission, values, and living expectations for Summer Project Neighborhood are the same as those during the school year. As a student you will still pursue personal development and thoughtfully engage the communities of your house and their neighborhood, participate in weekly meetings, shared meals, and service commitments outside of the house.
The biggest differences in the structure of the program will be the absence of the one-credit IDIS 394 seminar course, and the smaller number of houses.
The charge for living in the house will be $255 per month (for three months), which includes all utilities except personal long distance calls. Shared food expenses are not covered in the charge. A certain amount of "program" expenses will be covered with this fee.
Students interested in Summer Project Neighborhood are asked to submit an application and schedule a time for an interview with current PN mentors and students.
