[ARCHIVED] Young Leaders Sought for Hanover's Youth Engagement Team

Registration is now open for Hanover's Youth Engagement Team (YET).  These young people will design service projects for Global Youth Service Day (GYSD), which will be held April 12-14, 2019.

We are looking for youth (5th through 12 grade) who are interested in improving their leadership skills through a series of interactive YET workshops.  The workshops will be held on January 17, February 21 and March 21.

Participants will practice youth advocacy, gain experience working on a team, set measurable project objectives and develop action plans for engaging community members in service learning projects.  The Youth Engagement Team will work together creating innovative solutions to community needs and design youth-led GYSD projects.

Young people who are inspired to create positive change in the lives of others are invited to enroll online at until the first workshop on January 17. The first workshop will be held at the Department of Community Resources, 12310 Washington Highway, Ashland.

The February 21 workshop will be held at the Mechanicsville Branch Library, 7461 Sherwood Crossing Place, Mechanicsville.

The March 21 workshop will be held at a place to be determined.

All three workshops will be held from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.  Members are expected to attend all three monthly workshops.

YET members are invited to celebrate by attending the Teen Day of Service, April 13, 2019 at the Patrick Henry YMCA, 217 Ashcake Road, Ashland.


2019 will be the 10th anniversary of Hanover County’s participation in GYSD, the world’s largest youth-led service event.
