Linfield College students to participate in global youth service day

Linfield College students will come together to volunteer their time and effort during Global Youth Service Day Saturday, April 24.

Global Youth Service Day is an annual campaign that celebrates and mobilizes youth to improve the community. The celebration was established in 1988 and is the largest service event in the world, celebrated in over 100 countries. This event gives youth the power to focus on the world’s most critical issues and move towards improvement. This service is done in partnership with families, schools, businesses, governments, and community and faith-based organizations.

This year, 125 Linfield community members will work with several local organizations including St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, Yamhill Community Action Partnership, Yamhill County Gospel Rescue Mission, Habitat for Humanity, Yamhill Basin Council, Yamhill Soil and Water Conservation District, Salvation Army Community Garden, and McMinnville Water and Light.
