UWYLS Hosts Table at Global Youth Service Day Kick-Off!

Many of El Paso’s youth are gearing up for Global Youth Service Day weekend which will take place April 26-28th.

This global event draws youth participation from all over the world. Kicking off this weekend’s global volunteer efforts, several of El Paso’s youth hosted a celebration on Saturday, April 20th at the Fort Bliss Trading Post where local organizations got to participate by hosting booths.UWYLS hosted their own booth with fun activities for kids including basketball, ping pong, jump rope and arts and crafts.

Parents who attended were also given information about UWYLS and how they could join. Thank you to all our members who came out and participated in this fun event.

This year, UWYLS will be volunteering at the KCOS Art Auction on Thursday, April 25th from 7 am to 10 pm, and Sunday, April 28th from 2 pm – 5 pm and 5 pm to 8 pm. Volunteers will be answering phones and taking bids from people who call during this live on-air art auction.
