MN FCCLA is a Lead Agency for Global Youth Service with Youth Service America.
Lead Agencies are a vital part of increasing youth participation in their communities by engaging new youth volunteers for the first time on national days of service. The primary role of a Lead Agency is to convene a coalition of partners who will collectively activate youth – especially those in middle and high school in under-served communities who aren’t usually asked to participate.
What Do People Do FOR SERVICE PROJECTS?
Every year on Global Youth Service Day, youth organizations, schools and individuals around the world realize thousands of projects. They focus on voluntary community service and range from learning sessions about current social and environmental challenges to clean-up actions, nursing home visits, and concerts. In previous years, the total number of projects on all five continents was 4467.
Global Youth Service Day was launched as National Youth Service Day in 1988. It is coordinated by Youth Service America, and most of the projects are based in the United States. However, a growing number of volunteers from other parts of the world take part in the activities each year.
Global Youth Service Day –State Officers are planning service events and celebrations for the State Conference.
MN Family, Career and Community Leaders of America ( FCCLA) will develop youth-organized workshops, conferences, and projects. Youth will lead peer education efforts to influence their peers to develop service efforts. We will partner with other programs to bring information and inspiration to their peers in workshops and assemblies and develop service-learning programs around these issues for children, near-peers or their peers. Members will demonstrate “what they know” in MN FCCLA STAR Events (Students Taking Action with Recognition) presentations before an evaluation team.
