Global Youth Service Day grows each year, is observed in more than 135 countries and on six continents. For more information about GYSD and YSA, please visit http://www.GYSD.org and www.YSA.org.
Country Partner for Afghanistan: In 2013, CPD was selected to be the lead organizer in Afghanistan and to mobilize youth age 5 to 25 in community service and service learning projects that address pressing issues in their communities. Fortunately, CPD continued to play the country partner role in Afghanistan for GYSD 2014 as well.http://www.gysd.org/countrypartners
