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
Young people who are inspired to create positive change in the
lives of others are invited to enroll online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YET2019
