For 25 years, the Global Youth Service Day has mobilized millions of children and youth annually to improve their communities.
The observance globally is from April 26-28.
In Evansville, the USI Service Learning Program coordinated what they call Youth Talkin' Trash.
This Saturday, April 27, local youth with take to the streets of downtown Evansville for Youth Talkin' Trash, to beautify the Evansville area by picking up litter.
As part of the Clean Evansville effort, volunteers will start at 9 a.m. and the event will be followed by a celebration at the YMCA, complete with food, drinks, free T-shirts, and an opportunity to break the Guinness World Record for the largest zumba class.
The pre registration response has been phenomenal, and it's not too late to sign up. Organizers say you can register by contacting the YMCA.
The clean up kicks off at 9:00 a.m. on the 27th and events run all day long. That Zumba world record attempt is set for 1:30 p.m.
Thanks to State Farm and Youth Service America for funding this project. See you there!
