Global Youth Service Day


Whether leading a food drive, building a community garden, or demanding equal rights for girls, take charge on Global Youth Service Day, April 11-13, 2014.


Global Youth Service Day 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 over 100 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.

Global Youth Service Day is a campaign of YSA (Youth Service America), an international leader in the youth service movement.

North Carolina already has one project on the schedule in Winston-Salem.

Do something in your school or community. Get some ideas, download a toolkit or host your own project.
