Stats should appear in the order of the questions in this form. If they appear in a different order, re-sort by clicking the arrow next to "Question #."
Projects and Hours
This is the "All Youth Hours" stat in the report. YVC defines “hours” as “time served on YVC activities,” including direct service and related training, project activities (icebreakers, meaningful service, service-learning, reflection, etc.) and planning time (including Youth Advisory Board meetings and IYAB meetings).
This is "Project Occurrence Count". A YVC project is defined as “a well-planned, supervised, team-based volunteer experience for youth between the ages of 11 and 18 that serves an important community need.” Please count each project occurrence. For example, if you have a project where you visit the same agency on a recurring basis, each visit counts as one project. Ydat is set up to count projects this way if you use the “multiple dates” feature.
Please provide total number of hours served in each YVC Strategic Focus Area found under "Hour Count by Focus Area." Every YVC project must be designated into one or more YVC Strategic Focus Areas (SFA). Affiliates using a data collection system other than Ydat must find a way to identify each project by the SFA categories.
This is "Agencies Served Count" in the Ydat Annual Stats Report. An agency is wherever the project is held and is defined as “an organization hosting a YVC project, including private nonprofits such as retirement homes and animal shelters and public nonprofits such as a city, state or other municipal departments.”
PLEASE NOTE: if there are no youth volunteers identified in a particular category, this field will not appear in your Ydat report. If you have no youth volunteers that identify in a required field, simply enter "0". Please double check your information to ensure that your numbers align with what is represented in your Ydat report in the correct order.
This is the "Unduplicated Youth Count" in the Ydat report. List the total number of individual, unduplicated youth who served on a YVC project during the 9/1/22-8/31/23 period. Do not count referrals (directing interested youth or parents to non-YVC service opportunities). If a youth signed up for a project, yet didn't attend, please delete them from the project.
This is the "Ongoing Youth Count" in the Ydat Report. As soon as a youth volunteer reaches 30 hours of service with your YVC program, whether it takes two weeks or eight years, please ensure they complete a YVC Youth Survey (available at https://ydat.org/survey)
This is the "Under-resourced/Disadvantaged Youth Count" in the Ydat report. YVC defines “under-resourced youth” as youth who are any one of the following: •Qualifies for free/reduced school lunch (US) or free/reduced busing (Canada). • Family experiencing housing, food, or income insecurity •Are completing court-ordered service or are former juvenile offenders. • Are living with a disability. • In or aging out of foster care • Limited proficiency in community's dominant language • Faces a barrier not listed above
These numbers can be found under "Youth Count by Gender."
While this question may be optional on YVC applications/profiles, it is very important to collect for fundraising purposes and to evaluate the diversity of your YVC program. YVC has referenced the US Dept. of Health and Human services guidelines to select the above categories. If you have questions or inquiries, please let us know.
These numbers can be found under "Youth Count by Ethnicity." Please double-check the order of ethnicities listed according to the ethnicities represented in your Ydat report.
