ACYOA Summertime Service

For the third summer in a row, the ACYOA Central Council is encouraging its chapters and membership to participate in Summertime Service, but with a little twist during these socially-distant times! These last couple months have been nothing short of unexpected, but the world has shown their love and support for one another and many have been working together for our communities through service. Now that summer is upon us, we wanted to share some ideas with our ACYOA chapters and membership to take part in Summertime Service in these special times. Attached please find a Summertime Service Infographic to see some creative ways to offer service to your community. Follow ACYOA on Facebook and Instagram to see videos of service ideas in action, and be sure to use the hashtag #acyoaservice to promote your service on social media!
