VTS Denmark Youth Club participated in the Meals by Grace service, helping to pack food for 66 families in need. We got to work with other students outside of Denmark VT Seva as well. This was a great opportunity to connect with students that are just as passionate about giving and volunteering.
Our club has been actively meeting to discuss goals for 2024 and how to engage our Denmark youth in exciting events to come! During the October VTSEVA Denmark meeting on 10/25, we covered information about the Presidential Volunteer Service Award like how many hours are required and when it will be awarded. We also showed the attendees a brief video how to log their hours. Additionally we introduced our club volunteer opportunity, Meals for Grace, and the registration opened. Overall it was a very productive and engaging meeting!
