Youth Volunteer Opportunities
Global Youth Service Day
Global Youth Service Day is the largest service event in the world held each April and the only one dedicated to youth. For the past decade, thousands of Hanover youth have participated in or led one of Hanover's many registered GYSD service projects.
For 2019, multiple service projects will take place on or before GYSD weekend, April 12-14th.
Both the Hanover Youth Service Council (HYSC) and the Hanover Youth Engagement Team (YET), will be engaged in conducting and promoting service projects based upon identified community needs! Opportunities will be available for other groups and individual youth to get involved.
Youth from 5th to 12th grade are currently participating in YET workshops which focus on strength based leadership concepts, creating opportunities for youth leaders to practice being an agent of change and build confidence in their leadership abilities. Members of YET will work collaboratively with the Hanover community to expand the reach of community service projects.
