LEAP Africa Youth Day of Service

Youth Day of Service (YDoS), founded by LEAP Africa, is an annual week-long pan-African youth-led social impact campaign that begins on August 12 every year, which is also ‘International Youth Day.’

YDoS is intended to spark the agency and creativity of young people all over Africa in the direction of sustainable development, as well as to promote a culture of communal support and community development.
