YVC Queens

YOUTH VOLUNTEER CORPS IS UNIQUE

Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC) began in 1987 as a summer service program for Kansas City youth. Today, YVC is a network of affiliated organizations across the U.S. and Canada running that same program by engaging youth ages 11-18 in team-based, structured, diverse, flexible service-learning opportunities.

 

YVC Affiliates include United Ways, YMCAs, Boys & Girls Clubs, volunteer centers, parks and recreation departments and other youth-serving organizations. Each YVC program looks a little different depending on the host organization and the local community, but they all implement the same program model and receive ongoing support and resources from YVC Headquarters.
