Campus Y Serve Your City

Serve Your City

Serve Your City will give high schoolers an experience that ignites a passion within them to improve the world, and St Louis, in measurable ways.

The Gateway Region YMCA is partnering with local St Louis community service organizations to provide a unique opportunity for a one-week conference-style experience hosted on Washington University’s Campus. Student participants will be educated on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as a framework to address local and global issues.
