This year, Dream Weaver Foundation is partnering with Earth Day Texas, State Fair of Texas, Volunteer Now, YMCA Grand Prairie and Young Women’s Preparatory Network for GYSD 2017.

Youth-led community projects are taking place in all 50 states and 100 countries to make their communities healthier, greener, smarter, fairer, cleaner and safer.
