Millions of youth around the world recently celebrated Global Youth Service Day - a world-wide campaign for service learning projects led by kids. Its a way to celebrate service learning in general and to get kids excited about helping out their own communities.
Milwaukee youth showed off their projects at an event at the Manpower building (which I have temporarily re-named Youthpower.) Mayor Barrett led off the event with words of praise and urged them to stay involved with their neighborhoods. Kids get involved through their schools, churches or other non-profits like Boys and Girls clubs.
