Take Three Steps to an Amazing Global Youth Services Day!


Get ready to experience the unstoppable power of young people on a global level!

Because April 21 is Global Youth Service Day, when kids and teens from around the globe unite to make the world a better place. Sound familiar? (Hint: look no further than a green trefoil.)

This year, Girl Scouts across the United States will roll up their sleeves and lead the charge in bringing innovative, youth-led solutions to real-world problems.

And it's not too late to get in on the action! Here's how, in just three steps:

  1. Raise your hand. Ask your troop leader or council staff for information on how to participate in your area. Or look up information on getting involved individually, with an organization, at school, or with your family.

  2. Pick your project. Make a difference in one of six key areas: health, environment, poverty and hunger, education, human rights, or community building. 

  3. Take action! Get out there and change the world! Show everyone how Girl Scouts take the lead to improve ourselves, our families, our communities, and our world.

Let us know how you, as a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™, will celebrate Global Youth Service Day. Share your story, and you could be featured on the Girl Scout Blog or in future Our Stories articles and videos.

Girl Scouts—and all young citizens of the world—can make a big difference. Let's do this!
