ASPIRANTES participate in Global Youth Service Day!

Aspirantes from Booker T. Washington Sr. High School in conjunction with Hands on Miami, participated in the largest service event in the world, the Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) on April 25th, 2009.  GYSD is an annual global event that highlights and celebrates the ongoing contributions of youth to their communities through volunteer service and service-learning. Over the past 21 years, GYSD has brought together more than 40 million people in thousands of communities worldwide.

The mangrove swamp and estuary areas of the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens have suffered greatly from hurricanes and the invasion of exotic species. ASPIRANTES along with a hundred other Miami youths, helped to restore the Vizcaya gardens back to its natural state. Afterward, ASPIRANTES spent the afternoon exploring the plush gardens.
