YRNO Designated as Lead Agency to Organize New Orleans Campaign for Global Youth Service Day 2018

We are excited to announce that Youth Rebuilding New Orleans will serve as a 2018 Global Youth Service Day Lead Agency, mobilizing New Orleans’ young people to lead volunteer service projects that help meet community needs.  Global Youth Service Day is an international event on April 20-22, 2018 that celebrates the power of young people.

With grant funding from The Charles Stewart Mott Foundation along with training and support from YSA (Youth Service America), YRNO will lead high-impact, high-visibility service activities and celebration events for Global Youth Service Day (GYSD).

As the official organizer of GYSD in New Orleans, YRNO plans to engage at least 100 youth volunteers and partner with 10 other community-based organizations and schools. If you or your organization is interested in joining the coalition to organize youth-led community events, celebrations and service projects for Global Youth Service Day, please reach out to YRNO at 504-264-3344.

Now in its 30th year, Global Youth Service Day is the largest and longest-running youth service event in the world, and the only event dedicated to celebrating the contributions that young people make to their communities year-round.
