Global Youth Service Day

Global Youth Service Day recognizes the positive impact that young people have to their communities year-round. Join us in taking part in the largest service event in the world! Established in 1988, Global Youth Service Day is the only day of service dedicated to mobilizing children and youth. Last year, GYSD was celebrated in over 130 countries and mobilized over 5,400 youth across the world.  

For Volunteers

Projects took place on Saturday and Sunday April 18-19, 2015

Hanover County Projects

Hanover County Department of Community Resources and HandsOn Greater Richmond are teaming up again this year to mobilize thousands of youth to “shower” the Hanover region with volunteer activities you can do from home leading up to OR on the weekend of Global Youth Service Day. HandsOn is hosting registration for these opportunities but each will be directed through the Hanover County Department of Community Resources.
