2021 After School Program

Global Youth Service Day is the largest youth service and civic action event in the world and the only one that celebrates and builds the capacity of all youth ages 5-25 to help our communities and democracy thrive by working together for the common good. On Global Youth Service Day, we call on everyone to engage all young people and adult champions to serve, advocate, join, celebrate, or build capacity. 

This civic project will give youth direct access to the knowledge and experiences of civic leaders who are currently making decisions on behalf of their communities. Given the opportunity to engage in a question-and-answer session will both encourage youth to get involved with community service, public speaking, and social justice engagement.

We would be honored to have your child participate with us on Global Youth Service Day as we “Empower Youth to Change the World”.
