Global Youth Service Day 2015

Posted by Peter MUIR

gysd2015 logoGlobal Youth Service Day (GYSD) celebrates and mobilizes the millions of young people who improve their communities each day of the year through service. Established in 1988, Global Youth Service Day is the largest service event in the world, and the only day of service dedicated to children and youth.

GYSD is celebrated each year in more than 135 countries, with young people working together–and with schools, youth organizations, nonprofits, community and faith-based organizations, national service programs, government agencies, and  adult mentors– to address the world’s most critical issues and change their communities.

This day provides an opportunity for you to connect your Community Engagement projects with the work of other youth around the globe.  The organisers also have great resources that can help you investigate, prepare and then act on your ideas to make a change.  Click here to access resources, see how to add your project to the list of others projects ran by youth around the globe, and more.
