Global Youth Service Day Grantees

On April 20-22, 2018, more than 1,300 volunteers will participate in service projects organized for Global Youth Service Day, which will be supported by ServeOhio project grants. Established in 1988, Global Youth Service Day is the largest service event in the world, and the only day of service dedicated to children and youth. Now in its 30th year, Global Youth Service Day recognizes the positive impact that young people have on their communities 365 days a year. GYSD is celebrated in more than 100 countries with youth-led service projects. Ten youth volunteer projects will take place in nine Ohio cities – Bellefontaine, Cleveland, Maumee, Nelsonville, Sandusky, Stewart, Sunbury, Warren, Wauseon, and Youngstown. The grants, made possible through ServeOhio’s Stewards of Service corporate partners Honda of America Mfg., and American Electric Power Foundation, range between $500 and $1,000 each.

2018 ServeOhio Award Recipients

Volunteerism and service improves lives in Ohio every minute of every day. The impact of everyday citizens who reach beyond themselves to help their neighbors and communities – transforming themselves and others – shapes who we are as a state. We give, we learn, we serve, we grow. The ServeOhio Awards, made possible through support from corporate Stewards of Service, Honda of America Mfg., Inc. and AEP Foundation, recognize outstanding people, groups, and initiatives in each region of Ohio who make great contributions to their communities through service and volunteerism. A cash award of $1,000 is issued to support the organization which benefited from the winner’s service. The awards will be presented in the volunteer’s local community during National Volunteer Week, April 15-21, 2018.
