Youth Volunteer Corps (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. Five County Association of Government – Community Action sponsors Cedar City-YVC to achieve these goals, including those from low-income households.
OUR FOUR FUNDAMENTAL GOALS
1. To engage youth in service projects that are challenging, rewarding and educational.
2. To serve the unmet needs of the community and its residents.
3. To promote among youth a greater understanding and appreciation for the diversity of their community.
4. To promote a lifetime ethic of service among youth.
IT’S ALL ABOUT QUALITY
Studies tracking youth who volunteer have found that they can develop negative attitudes about service if they don’t feel that their efforts make a difference. That is why Youth Volunteer Corps has utilized the same model for 30 years—team-based, diverse, structured, flexible service-learning opportunities for youth.
