UAU Global Youth Service Day

Do you want to give back to your community? Do you want to get involved in a cause you care about? Do you want to earn community service hours and have fun?  Freshkills Park Alliance will be participating in the 33rd annual Global Youth Service Day.

Global Youth Service Day is the largest youth service and civic action event in the world, and the only one that celebrates and creates opportunities for youth ages 5 to 25, their communities, and our democracy to thrive by working together for the common good! !

GYSD is your chance to give back to your community and a cause you care about! How will you commit to service this year? How will you give back to the community? How will you get involved?
