We are proud to be recognized as a Lead Agency for Youth Service America. As an official organizer of 9/11 Day of Service, MLK Day of Service, and Global Youth Service Day (GYSD), Lead Agencies are responsible for convening partner coalitions of youth development and community-based organizations, K-12 schools, colleges and universities, government agencies, national service programs, and faith-based organizations to activate youth – especially those in underserved communities who are not usually asked to serve. From September through April, Lead Agencies also participate in ongoing capacity-building training via conference calls and webinars, tailored resources, and bi-monthly newsletters.
On the 31st annual Global Youth Service Day in April 2019, Lead Agencies will be completing projects nationwide, covering different topics that will leave a positive impact on their respective communities. S.C.R.A.P. Gallery is planning a variety of projects and events including the Walking For Water 6K at Nellie N. Coffman Middle School and A Whale of A Project at Sunny Sands Elementary School in Cathedral City. These are unique environmental projects that are designed and coordinated by youth. For more information, please contact us. We look forward to your ideas and participation.
