Quota International’s Junior Quota Mentoring Program, created in 2004, has allowed hundreds of youths in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the Philippines to serve their communities by giving back. These young and inspirational leaders are everyday heroes providing comfort at women’s shelters, packaging food at food banks, and raising funds for cancer research. Since today is Global Youth Services Day, we want to salute the young everyday heroes who are making a difference around the world.
About Global Youth Service Day
“Established in 1988, Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) celebrates and mobilizes the millions of young people who improve their communities through service. GYSD is the largest service event in the world and the only one dedicated to the contributions that children and youth make 365 days of the year.
GYSD is celebrated each year in more than 135 countries, with young people working together–and with schools, youth organizations, nonprofits, community and faith-based organizations, national service programs, government agencies, and adult mentors– to address the world’s most critical issues and change their communities.
Global Youth Service Day is a campaign of YSA (Youth Service America), an international leader in the youth service movement.”
