For a Good Cause: Global Youth Service Day in Natomas

THE NATOMAS BUZZ |@natomasbuzz

Council District One youth programs and the City of Sacramento’s Volunteer Program were one of 100 lead agencies selected for a grant funded by State Farm to coordinate projects that engage at least 600 youth volunteers in one day of volunteerism called Global Youth Service Day (GYSD).

GYSD celebrates and mobilizes millions of young people from around the world who want to improve their communities.

Signature park beautification events will take place on Saturday, April 12th, from 9am to 12pm at four locations:
· North Natomas Regional Park (District One)
· San Juan Reservoir Park (District One)
· Orchard Park (District Four)
· South Natomas Community Park (District Three)

A post-event celebration at 12:30pm at North Natomas Regional Park will include remarks from Mayor Pro Tem Angelique Ashby, entertainment, and refreshments.

Established in 1988, Global Youth Service Day is the largest service event in the world, and the only day of service dedicated to children and youth. It is celebrated each year in more than 135 countries, with young people working together.20140411-135624.jpg
