Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) celebrates and mobilizes the millions of young people who improve their communities through service. GYSD is the largest service event in the world and the only one dedicated to the contributions that children and youth make 365 days of the year. This year, we spent GYSD with more than 500 local student volunteers from:
Grand Rapids City High Middle School
Ottawa Hills High School
Innovation Central High School
Forest Hills Eastern High School
Together, we completed service projects for:
Blandford Nature Center
Friends of Grand Rapids Parks
Kent County Parks Department
Meals on Wheels Western Michigan
Kids' Food Basket
Kent County Animal Shelter
Clark Retirement Community
Kent Conservation District.
Special thanks to our project leaders from Cherry Health AmeriCorps and all of our student volunteers!
