Hundreds of young people from your community will join thousands of youth across the commonwealth to serve their communities as part of Global Youth Service Day, April 25-27.

Global Youth Service Day is an annual event organized by Youth Service America. It is the largest service event in the world, mobilizing young people to identify and address community needs through service and civic engagement. The event also educates the public about the role of youth as leaders and resources in their communities.

Kentucky Child Now serves as lead agency for Youth Service America in Kentucky. As a representative for Kentucky Child Now in my role of community youth development coordinator, we truly hope that every club, school and church in your community participates in Global Youth Service Day projects. We want elementary through high school young people to participate.

Communities in our state are committed to raising caring and competent adults. It is critical for youth to understand the value of community by giving back to their community. Service projects will serve as the first step for many youth in their commitment to lifelong community service.
