Leadership Southwestern students have chosen three Winfield schools to serve during Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) which lasts from April 24-26.
On Thursday, April 23, first-year Leadership Southwestern students will head to Holy Name Catholic School between 1-4 p.m. working with the kids on their playground.
On Friday, April 24, the Leadership students will partner with Country View Elementary students to landscape and plant flowers at Country View between 8-11 a.m. At 2:30 p.m. the Leadership students will read to elementary students at Irving Elementary.
There will be a Thank You luncheon for everyone who participated in GYSD on Saturday, April 25, at 11 a.m. in Winfield’s Island Park.
According to the GYSD Web site, millions of youth around the world organize community service projects to address the needs of their local communities through service, to be recognized for their contributions, and to be a part of a global youth service movement. Country music stars Miley Cyrus and The Carter Twins have pledged to promote and help GYSD.
