Global Youth Service Day

In honor of Earth Day, young people all over the world participate in “Global Youth Service Day” by engaging in service learning projects that focus on environmental issues. This year, the students and AmeriCorps members of Isles YouthBuild Institute (IYI) participated in the Trenton Mentoring Coalition’s “Saturday of Service” event cleaning up the D&R Canal around Hermitage Avenue. IYI students worked with other mentoring groups from the community, TCNJ AmeriCorps VISTAs, and the state park staff. Students learned some history about the canal, the importance of making sure the environment is clean, and the importance of Earth Day.
