Find Your Voice, #LeadASAP & Make an Impact on Global Youth Service Day

Celebrating 30 years of youth changing the world, Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) activates youth to #LeadASAP through Awareness, Service, Advocacy, and Philanthropy. Through service to their community, youth gain powerful 21st century skills like empathy, critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication – skills they need to be successful in school, work, and life. GYSD will be celebrated on April 20-22 in more than 100 countries, with millions of young people working together to address the UN Sustainable Development Goals and change their communities.
