Global Youth Service Day
You’re invited to join GYSD MKE!
The Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee is proud to serve as our area’s Lead Agency for Global Youth Service Day, and we join with all of our community partners in inviting you to get involved in this international celebration of service.
Global Youth Service Day is the world’s largest service event and recognizes the positive contributions young people make to their communities every day of the year. Join with others in Milwaukee and around the world who want to CELEBRATE youth in service.
All projects that make a positive impact on our communities are welcome, from neighborhood cleanups to food drives to anything Milwaukee’s youth and youth-serving organizations can imagine!
All young people up to age 25 - along with their families, schools, youth-serving agencies, Community Learning Centers, businesses, and community and faith-based organizations – are invited to plan and carry out service projects any time during the month of April. Each year, Youth Serve America, the global convener of the event, designates a certain weekend in April as the official Global Youth Service Day. Many events, including our signature service event and celebration, take place on that designated weekend. However, organizations are invited to plan projects for any time during the month of April.
