Christina Dang is a team coach at Public Allies San Francisco, which helps build professional and personal leadership skills. Public Allies is partnering with Hunters Point Family and the Recreation and Park Department for Global Youth Service Day on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 1120 Oakdale Ave.
What is happening on the day? It’s an annual event that is celebrating local youth leaders for serving the community. We will be working on a project to revitalize and restore the Adam Rogers Park with weeding, planting and digging involved. There will also be youth performances and workshops, and experiments by local high school students.
Why are you encouraging people to take part? We are focusing on revitalizing the community garden because the Bayview-Hunters Point area has a history of environmental injustice. We are making the community aware and promoting the fact that they can eat healthy and grow their own produce.
How do people sign up? They can sign up on the day at the registration table or can do so beforehand at tinyurl.com/GYSDSF.
