So far the Youth have raised $8,000.
The Global Voice Youth need your donation small and large to help them raise $17,000.
Global Voice is an annual Community Chest program that began in 2003, runs August through May, and offers Storey and Lyon County youth leadership, citizenship, and academic enrichment opportunities by bridging education and community service. Global Voice promotes leadership development through service-learning, a methodology where learning happens in conjunction with volunteer service projects benefiting communities at home and abroad. Service Learning helps youth learn about themselves, their communities, and the world by working together.
This year 14 youth will travel to Ireland. The youth will research Ireland and develop a partnership with a local Irish nonprofit that helps address issues of concern in Ireland communities. Through the project, youth will work with Ireland youth addressing social justice issues. Project purposes intend to inspire learning, cultural exchange, and the importance of community service at home and abroad. Upon return from Ireland, the youth will use what they learned to improve their community and plan events for Global Youth Service Day, community enrichment projects, and share their learning experience with their peers.
