Four Ways to Engage At-Risk Youth in Community Service

Greater Topeka - GYSD 2014 (4)

Here at YVC, we try to make sure that the youth who serve on every YVC project represent the diversity of the community they’re serving. This means that youth represent a variety of ethnicities, religions, socioeconomic statuses, neighborhoods and more. We want to ensure that all youth–no matter the situation they’re born in–have the opportunity to make a difference.

To ensure that we’re moving toward this goal with every project every day, we’re constantly evaluating how we can better serve different populations. So we were honored to share our perspective on the value of service for at-risk youth for the National Clearinghouse for Family & Youth blog.

Head over to hear four tips from YVC’s Founder and President David Battey along with longtime YVC partner Youth Service America: Four Ways to Engage At-Risk Youth in Community Service

Thanks to the National Clearinghouse for Family & Youth for helping us spread the word about youth service!
