Happy 25th Anniversary to YVC of Baton Rouge, LA!
In 25 years of service, there’s no telling how many youth and community members have been impacted by YVC of Baton Rouge. Meet just one of these youth, Mahajebin:
“As a regular teenager it’s important to know that I have the ability to make a difference in my community, and that I can play a valuable role in it. The Youth Volunteer Corps gives me the opportunity to do these things with kids from any background and social status. Not only does YVC allow me to give back to the beautiful city of Baton Rouge, it also gives me the chance to learn more about it and see the world through a more realistic lens.”
(Read Mahajebin’s full story here.)
Mahajebin is just one of the thousands of youth who have served with YVC of Baton Rouge over the last 25 years. They have helped at animal shelters, visited seniors in assisted living centers, cleaned up parks, built homes with Habitat for Humanity, served meals to the hungry and more. Just in the last year alone, 104 youth served 2,601 hours with YVC of Baton Rouge.
These Youth Volunteers have transformed their community, and they have found themselves transformed in the process.
Happy 25th Anniversary, YVC of Baton Rouge! We’re in awe of everything youth have accomplished in the last 25 years and can’t wait to see what they’ll do in the years to come.
Thank you to Capital Area United Way for hosting the YVC of Baton Rouge program for 25 years!
