Global Youth Service Day Description
Youth in Calarasi have started a series of projects to improve the central park in the town. Last year a Public Achievement project identified the community need to improve the park, made a video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esz3KoNMfNc&feature=share) of the problems with the park, installed a few new park benches, and got the local government to install wifi.
As part of the Hai Calarasi community cleanup and improvement effort, youth this year will convert the old fountains from the Russian era into landscaped gardens and paint murals on the retaining walls. A portion of the funds for the park project were raised through the Peace Corps Partnership Program, a program that supports Peace Corps volunteer projects worldwide. Murals must be approved in advance. To participate in the mural painting, youth who live in or go to school in Calarasi must submit by April 15 a sketch or idea for a mural to the eRadu Youth Center.
The Central Park Painting and Flower Project will give youth an opportunity to express themselves artistically while helping to improve their community.
