Youth Making a Difference
Has your child completed a community service project over the summer or are they planning to do so over the holiday season? Youth Making a Difference is a program that encourages and recognizes volunteer efforts by K-12 students. Livonia PTSA Council recognizes the efforts of these students at the annual Youth Making a Difference celebration in April. Some students, among other things, visit senior citizens, help collect money for the Livonia Goodfellows, pack lunches for the homeless, or rake leaves and pick up trash outside their schools or community. The YMAD program and celebration is a great way to recognize our children’s efforts. The commitment forms will go home soon and are due back February 22nd. Projects are due March 22nd and the ceremony is in April 2019 at Franklin High School.
