are needed to help out with the fifth annual Native American Youth
Service Day in Browning by engaging in various service projects and
fun activities throughout the Blackfeet Indian Reservation.
The Blackfeet Youth Initiative, a children's
volunteer group and AmeriCorps program, organized the event, which
kicks off at 8 a.m. on Saturday, April 27 in Browning's "Government
Square" with sign-up and breakfast.
After participants go to various project
sites, they'll meet at the local school for a parade of volunteers
and walk to "Government Square," where they'll be served
a meal and take part in more activities.
Organizers hope the day that celebrates
culture, service, youth leadership and community involvement will
become a model of how Native Americans and non-Native American's
can work together for a better future.
AmeriCorps members and volunteers from
across Montana will be participating in the event. AmeriCorps, the
domestic Peace Corps, engages more than 50,000 Americans in intensive,
results-driven service each year.
