Global Youth Service Day is an annual campaign that celebrates and mobilizes the millions of children and youth who improve their communities each day of the year through service and service-learning. Established in 1988, Global Youth Service Day is the largest and longest-running service event in the world, and the only day of service dedicated to children and youth. GYSD is celebrated each year in over 100 countries.
Each year, millions of children and youth around the world work together with schools, youth organizations, nonprofits, community and faith-based organizations, volunteer and national service programs, government agencies, faith communities, and other individuals to address the world’s most critical issues and change their communities on Global Youth Service Day.
ELIX has been selected as the official Country Partner for GYSD 2012 and will be coordinating and promoting the event across Greece, as well as hosting two events of this worldwide campaign during the weekend 21st & 22nd April 2012.
The success of the weekend depends upon organizations at the local & national level.
