Part of my job description as a Senior Youth Crew Leader for the MCC was to organize a National Youth Service Day. I have no experience organizing events, and being new to a community with little to no connections was quite daunting. But I managed to pull off a rather successful Youth Service Day at one of the local State Parks. We had forty kids and a few parents volunteer with us. Our main task was to resurface a nature trail with mulch. But we had some side projects as well. All in all we had a great time, the weather was great, and we developed some partnerships with a few school organizations and Lake Elmo State Park.
