Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) is taking place from April 24 to 26, and according to organizers, is the largest annual service event in the world. The annual days of service aim to “highlight and celebrate the difference youth make in their communities year-round through community service and service-learning.”

This weekend, estimated millions of young people will participate in and lead service projects in all 50 states and in more than 100 countries.

In partnership with families, schools, community organizations, faith-based communities, and businesses, the young people will address critical issues such as global climate change, homelessness, poverty, health, hunger, homelessness, education and illiteracy.

Youth spokesperson Miley Cyrus has been promoting GYSD this year — learn more about her involvement and check out her blog.
