National & Global Youth Service Day Impact 2006

As the Lead Agency for National & Global Youth Service Day (N&GYSD) 2006 in San Diego County, Volunteer San Diego coordinated N&GYSD events across the county between April 17 - 23, including a signature event planned entirely by our SAVY Leaders.

A total of 28 National & Global Youth Service projects took place in San Diego County between April 17 - 23. 986 volunteers (of which 783 were youth 25 and under) participated, contributing over 3,500 hours of service to the San Diego community.

National & Global Youth Service Day (N&GYSD) is the largest service event in the world, engaging millions of young people ages 5-25. It promotes public awareness and education, highlights the amazing contributions that young people make to their communities, and supports and encourages youth to begin on a life-long path of service and civic engagement.
