Join Boston Cares for Global Youth Service Day on
Sunday, April 23, 2017!
We are very excited for everyone to volunteer with us during this year’s Global Youth Service Day! Did you know that Global Youth Service Day is the single largest youth volunteer engagement day in the world? Youth up to the age of 25 are engaged in more than 110 countries! We are excited to be hosting this year’s Global Youth Service Day at the Boston Green Academy with a focus on environmental projects. Perfect for Earth Day!
This year, volunteers will focus on a variety of projects throughout Boston Green Academy. Check out some examples of projects you could participate in:
- Decorating counter-top compost bins filled with educational materials and garden starter kits
- Creating murals for the Boston Green Academy
- Tending to the grounds at BGA through landscaping, cleaning, spreading stone dust
- Repainting picnic tables
- Assembling new benches
- Decorating stepping stones and pots
- Creating new signs for the garden
Global Youth Service Day is a great experience for families or larger groups of volunteers to sign-up and serve together. Volunteers ages 5+ are welcome! If you have a group that you would like to participate, keep in mind that groups up to 15 may register together with a 3:1 youth to adult ratio.
This event would not be possible without our generous sponsors and partners!
