Youth Can Make a Difference!

Global Youth Service DayS

  April 2011

The largest celebration of youth and the contributions they make to their communities. 

What is "Global Youth Service Days"?
Global Youth Service Day(s) (GYSD) is an annual global event that Celebrates, Recognizes, and Mobilizes:

a)  The year-round contributions of young people to build their communities and their world through voluntary service and

b)  The contributions made by the community (public, private, and nonprofit sectors) to empower young people

Our Vision
During  Global Youth Service Days (also called Global Youth Service Day by some), millions of young people throughout the world will highlight and carry out thousands of community improvement projects.  This period will be a way for local, national, and international organizations to:   
     •Recognize the year-round contributions of millions of young people worldwide
•Recruit a new generation of volunteers
•Promote young people as resources and not as problems in their communities.

Why Global Youth Service Days?
Around the world, millions of young people are making a difference in their community through programs and infrastructure that promote voluntary action.  The focus of GYSD is to stimulate greater awareness of and support for the promotion of positive youth development and youth voluntary action.  Youth volunteering is an effective way to build strong youth and strong communities.

How is Global Youth Service Days Organized?
All schools and youth organizations are encouraged to plan and highlight youth-led community service projects during Global Youth Service Days.  Organizations may want to highlight existing projects to the media and surrounding community, or may choose to organize special projects and events that involve youth with the broader community on GYSD.  

The Association for Volunteer Services is the designated National Lead Agency for GYSD Lebanon  for the eleventh year. It has also been appointed as the Regional Lead Agency for the Middle East and North Africa..
