WE DAY KENTUCKY FAQ'S
Questions about We Day Kentucky? We have answers! See below for answers to general questions about the event and ways to get involved.
We Day KY is a day of celebration and inspiration. You can’t buy a ticket to WE Day, you earn it through service. The day brings together world-class speakers, musicians and students who are leaders in service in their communities.
To earn a ticket to WE Day Kentucky, students and student groups must register at www.we.org. Using the free WE Schools resources kit they will receive after registering, students will plan and execute one local and one global service project during the year, focusing on any issues about which they are passionate! By completing these projects and reporting their results, they earn a ticket to attend WE Day Kentucky.
We Day Kentucky will take place at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts. The space will be filled with fun, compassion and service.
Every WE Day Kentucky has a Call To Action- a way for young people to come together to help young people in one specific manner. The Call To Action at WE Day Kentucky 2019 was to assemble WE CARE KITS to young people in need to be school-ready. The personal care items were donated to JCPS Family Resources Centers, Kentucky Refugee Ministries and local youth oriented non-profits in Jefferson County.
