My dear students,
We are going to celebrate Global Youth Service Day (Friday, april 15, 2016). Please, study the information below and find the attached tasks.
Global Youth Service Day
Global Youth Service Day (GYSD), originally launched and known as National Youth Service Day in the United States, is a coordinated annual event which gathers young people around the world in conducting community service, service learning, and youth voice activities that benefit their communities, their countries, and the world. Activities are organized in more than 100 countries each April to help mark the celebrations, and engage millions, making it the largest annual celebration of young volunteers.
Global Youth Service Day was launched as national youth service day in 1988. It is coordinated by youth service america, and most of the projects are based in the united states. However, a growing number of volunteers from other parts of the world take part in the activities each year.
What do people do?
Every year on global youth service day, youth organizations, schools and individuals around the world realize thousands of projects. They focus on voluntary community service and range from learning sessions about current social and environmental challenges to clean-up actions, nursing home visits, and concerts.
Global Youth Service Day is a global observance but not a public holiday.
