About Global Youth Day (April 11 - 17)

26f26ad3fe8e81df66fd46fffc0a29dd1a63d43b

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. The issues we would like to address in Lowndes, Monroe & Noxubee are: HEALTH, POVERTY, LITERACY, & EQUALITY

For more information please join us Monday, April 4, 2016 at 5:30 in the upstairs meeting room of the Columbus-Lowndes Public Library.
