Youth Volunteer Corps

More than just volunteering.

The Youth Volunteer Corps gives teens between the ages of 11 and 18 the opportunity to participate in group volunteer activities that are challenging and rewarding. In addition to serving their community, teens who participate develop leadership, social, and work skills, all while building friendships and learning about the world around them.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” — Mahatma Gandhi

Youth Volunteer Corps offers volunteer projects for youth on weekends, after school and during the summer. 49 youth served 1,736 hours in Manhattan and the surrounding communities with YVC during this last year.


Each project day, youth volunteers work to make an impact in their communities by completing a variety of service activities while learning about local and global social issues. Get involved today by enrolling online or contacting!”

YVC is made possible through funding from the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation’s YES Fund, Caroline Peine Foundation, and Konza United Way.
