Established in 1988, 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.
Youth groups and individual volunteers will gather in Omaha for a fun and engaging day of service to our community. This year's work will primarily take place in community gardens. Work will include topping off soil, routine maintenance, and preparing gardens for spring planting. Community gardens help neighbors in low-income areas have access to fresh, healthy produce while increasing skills and reducing food expenses.
This day of service is open to all ages and denominations. The cost to participate is $10, and pre-registration is required by April 22nd. Groups should bring 1 adult for every 5 youth. All of our staff have undergone background checks and are certified under the United Methodist Safe Gatherings system. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We hope you'll join us for this exciting day of service!
