The Neighborhood Youth Ambassador (NYA) program is a component of the Department of Community Planning and Development Neighborhood Leadership Institute. Each youth leader is challenged to complete a Make a Difference (M.A.D) project to benefit their neighborhoods or the community at large. Please support Savannah’s youth and join us for the following events:
Now – November 17th: Holiday Canned Food Drive. The items collected benefit families in need within the East Savannah neighborhood and the Americas Second Harvest Food Bank.
