YSU Honors College students participate in Global Day of Service

First-year students in the Honors College at Youngstown State University collectively contributed nearly 1,000 hours of service to the community as part of Global Day of Service, held earlier this semester.

Students volunteered at 15 sites throughout Mahoning County, ranging from Gleaners Food Bank, Mill Creek Metro Parks and the Dorothy Day House to Habitat for Humanity, the OH WOW children's center and the Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley. The work included making cards with older adults, gardening and even working with St. Angela Merici Parish in Youngstown to pull debris out of a ravine in Lincoln Park and recovering nearly 250 discarded tires.

The event is designed to not only make an impact in the community but also formally start the students' volunteer experience, part of the honors college curriculum.
