Student Poll Workers
In November of 2020 GYA coordinated an effort among various local social studies departments, schools, and the county government to drive a rapid increase in the number of student poll managers. These 16-17 year old poll workers got hands on experience on seeing how our democracy works, and got time to give back to their community. The county later told GYA that our organization played a large role in the 340% increase (50 to 220) of student poll managers.
For our first volunteer day, GYA partnered with local organization Sustaining Way to provide our volunteers with hands on experience in sustainability, gardening, and community service. In addition, we picked up trash around the Nicholtown area, and had a fantastic time. Since then, we’ve been restructuring GYA – but we’re back and ready to go.
