Youth for Global Youth Services Day
- Date: 04/13/2019 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM
More than 100 young people in Avondale will take part in the Annual Global Youth Service Day on Saturday, April 13, 2019. As part of collaboration between Avondale Youth Advisory Commission, local high schools and other community organizations, youth from the area will join millions of others in the United States and other countries to take part in planning community service projects and special events to mark the globally-recognized day of service.
This year’s Global Youth Service Day project in Avondale will take place from 8 a.m. to noon at the Tres Rios Wetlands area (located next to ISM Raceway, five miles south of I-10 on Avondale Blvd).
Green is the theme for Avondale’s Global Youth Service Day project. Staff, youth leadership and volunteers have developed a dynamic event that will include trail maintenance, garbage and graffiti cleanup. This is just one example of Avondale's Teen Leadership & Youth Services programs, which help prepare young people to meet the challenges of adulthood and to succeed in the future. The project will also help to preserve and protect the environment and increase awareness of about the beauty and value of the Tres Rios Wetlands area.
If you are interested in serving as a volunteer or sponsor for this event, please contact Lauren Twigg, firstname.lastname@example.org (623) 333-2719, or visit www.avondaleaz.gov/VolunteerAvondale to sign up.
