Date:4/23/2009

More than 1,800 projects registered for Global Youth Service Day

WASHINGTON, April 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Millions of children and youth all over the world will participate in volunteer and service activities as part of the 21st Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) on April 24-26, 2009.

During GYSD, the largest service event in the world and an initiative of Youth Service America (YSA), young people will participate in and facilitate projects with families, schools, community and faith-based organizations, and businesses; they focus on serious issues such as climate change, education, poverty, health, hunger and homelessness.

GYSD highlights and celebrates the positive contributions youth make to their communities every day of the year. It supports youth on a lifelong path of service and service-learning. To date, www.GYSD.org displays more than 1,800 registered projects all over the world, more than double the amount of registered projects at this time last year.

"The rising momentum of the youth service movement is a shining example of the positive change that stems from young people contributing to their communities," said Steve Culbertson, president and CEO of Youth Service America. "Global Youth Service Day is a powerful glimpse into the year-round participation of young volunteers. It is also an opportune time to connect children and youth who have never served with local projects that will inspire them to lead a life of service."

Activities and highlights of Global Youth Service Day 2009 include:
