Global Youth Service Day

Saturday we had high school students from Carver and Jesuit working on special projects as part of Global Youth Service Day activities. At Carver, gardening was the mission, with planters for vegetables and herbs getting built and filled. Meanwhile, Jesuit students were tasked with building a wheelchair ramp and some yardwork. Check out the action below! Update: The New Orleans Advocate also published pictures from Carver.
