South Tahoe youth to join thousands for Global Youth Service Day

Karen Houser
Boys & Girls Club of South Lake Tahoe

South Lake Tahoe youth will join thousands of communities across the country and throughout the world in celebrating Global Youth Service Day. Established in 1988, GYSD is the largest service event in the world and is now celebrated in over 100 countries.

On GYSD, children and youth address the world’s most critical issues in partnership with families, schools, communities and faith-based organizations, businesses and governments.

With the receipt of a $1,000 grant award from Youth Serve America and the Farmer’s Insurance Company, the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe and the HOPE Club of Lake Tahoe Community College have prepared three days of special events for the celebration to provide hope for a better community here in South Lake Tahoe.

Additionally, the Rotary Club of South Lake Tahoe and the Rotoract Club at Lake Tahoe Community College have scheduled their club’s service day to coincide with Global Youth Service Day.
