GYSD Jen Knutzen2

100 countries. 25 years. One week. These are three reasons that you should join one million young people worldwide and be a part of Global Youth Service Day this weekend! This year marks the 25th anniversary of GYSD when children, adults and everyone in between (that’s you!) from more than 100 countries come together to lead volunteer projects and events to celebrate the work youth are doing yearround. So how do you get started on a weekend of service? Begin by getting inspired by past efforts, and then search through over 2,000 GYSD projects online. Topics range from environmental clean-ups to large-scale campaigns in other parts of the world, so be creative. Even the smallest commitment will have a major impact and we can’t wait to see what you come up with!
