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

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