Published by franhilgh
In celebration of the Global Youth Service Day 2007, Youth Realities Network, a youth-led NGO organized a training seminar for some selected young people in Ashaley Botwe, Adentan Municipal Assembly in Ghana.

The Training Seminar was convened to celebrate the Global Youth Service Day, which is the largest annual celebration of young volunteers, where millions of young people in countries everywhere highlight and carry out thousands of community improvement projects. GYSD offers a way for local, national, and international organizations to:
• BUILD the capacity of an international network of organizations that promotes youth participation, service, and learning;
• EDUCATE the public, the media, and policy-makers about the year-round contributions of young people as community leaders around the world;
• MOBILIZE youth and adults to meet the needs of their communities through volunteering; and
• LEARN and share effective practices in youth service, youth voice, and civic engagement in the world today.
