Our GLOBAL YOUTH SERVICE DAY SATURDAY, APRIL 22ND
Every fourth weekend in April, thousands of young people around the world get involved in activities that improve their communities. Service has the power to change the world, and when youth plan and lead thoughtful, impactful projects, service does change the world!
Young people ages 5 to 25 and other community residents were invited to join TCYSB in promoting this global culture of engaged youth who are committed to a lifetime of service, learning, leadership, and achievement.
It was raining all day, but that did not stop most of the volunteers to participate.
