Established in 1988, Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) celebrates and mobilizes the millions of young people who improve their communities through service.  GYSD is the largest service event in the world and the only one dedicated to the contributions that children and youth make 365 days of the year.

 

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.

 

We are looking for Youth Leaders to plan, organize and implement the following projects:

 

  • Bamboo Removal
  • Trail Trimming
  • Painting
  • Exotic Removal
  • Build Bamboo Storage Racks
  • Arborvitae Removal
  • Build Benches and/or Picnic Tables
  • River Cleanup

 

Volunteers, ages 12-18, will work in small groups to accomplish the tasks at hand.

 

Immediately following the event all volunteers will enjoy a free lunch celebration and admission to Koreshan State Park for the day.
