Public Allies MD, an AmeriCorps program of the University of Maryland School of Social Work, will lead students in a service activity for Global Youth Service Day, April 11.

Over 600 students from several different Baltimore City public and private schools will help create lunch and toiletry bags for the homeless.

“Congratulations and thanks to the young people of Baltimore for their work to improve their community,” said Steven A. Culbertson, president of YSA (Youth Service America), the founder and chief convener of GYSD. “On Global Youth Service Day, the world stands in awe as we see what’s possible when kids take the lead as change-makers.”
