The Sweet Readers Stand Up! (SRSU) program is a call to action for young people to stand up for adults living with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia. Young people are putting up stands filled with valuable information and baked goods and raising awareness and funds to connect more Sweet Readers to Adults living with Alzheimer’s!
Sweet Readers Stand Up! started as an initiative of our Leadership Council for Global Youth Service Day (GYSD), the largest youth service initiative in the world, in 2015.
This year, SRSU is running from April through May. During that time you can Stand Up! as many times as you like and take the SRSU Challenge to raise awareness and funds for isolated adults in need.
We will be honoring stands with the most effective creativity, the most awareness raised and the best fundraisers both on our web site and at our Annual Insights & Appreciation Gathering in June.
If you participate in Sweet Readers Stand Up!, please send us a photo of your stand at work! We are excited to build a special gallery on our web site to celebrate everyone!
