Youth Volunteer Corps offers full and partial scholarships to youth in need, ensuring the inclusion of all youth participants, regardless of ability to pay. By adding a donation to your cart, you will help YVC to provide leadership opportunities for the youth in your community.
Your support will help to build employable skills, academic achievement, civic investment, and confidence in local youth. You will also be providing a week of fun, new friendships, and the chance for a youth in need to make a difference and feel confident in their ability to have a positive impact.
100% of your donation will go toward the youth scholarship fund!
We believe YVC empowers youth to lift each other up and make a difference in their community!
Every youth receives one free YVC summer T-shirt with registration for summer projects. We ask that youth wear their YVC shirt during all summer projects. If you would like to purchase an extra T-shirt, you can do so for $6. Program directors will give free T-shirts in addition to extra T-shirts purchased to youth on the first day of projects.
Only a few left!
