On Saturday, April 16th, AMUS Detroit participated in Global Youth Service Day 2016. Members and volunteers, both adults and children, came together to dedicate a day of service to the community around Vinewood street in Detroit. This event was made even more special because AMUS was able to directly impact the safety of one our own member's neighborhoods. To read more about this great event, be sure to check out the Michigan Community Service Commission's article which is linked below.

While taking a short break from January 2016's MLK service day event, we had the pleasure of meeting Cass Tech High School teacher, Lauralyn Taylor, and her students who volunteered that day. They graciously granted us with an impromptu interview, as we discussed the MLK 2016 service event, the impact of volunteering and the student's overall experience.
