Youth being recruited for Global Youth Service Day in April

Celebrating 36 years of youth changing the world, Global Youth Service Day (April 26-28, 2024) is the longest-running annual youth participation event in the world and the only one that asks all youth ages 5-25 to work together for the common good while also celebrating the difference young people make in their communities every day of the year.

You make GYSD happen by organizing activities in your schools and communities!

One way to participate is to lead Awareness, Service, Advocacy, or Philanthropy projects to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Use this tipsheet to choose an ASAP project. Then, use the Kids in Action Guide (ages 5-12) or the Youth Changing the World Toolkit (ages 13+ and available in English and 8 other languages) to plan your project.
