YVC St. Louis

St. Louis, Missouri

We engage youth in team-based service experiences that build life and work skills while inspiring a lifetime ethic of service. Our vision is communities defined by compassion, selflessness, and respect for others. ​

YVC projects engage teams of 8-10 youth ages 11-18 who volunteer their time to help local nonprofits and learn more about real issues in their communities. A trained and screened adult staff member supervises youth, leads them in icebreakers and team-building activities, and facilitates meaningful reflection.


2023 Summer Project Pricing: The actual cost per youth volunteer each week of YVC summer is $137. Because we believe every youth should have the opportunity to volunteer, YVC has subsidized the cost per week to be $69/week. This summer, you have the option to pay what you can and choose whatever fee works for best for your family.

No refunds except for extenuating circumstances such as project cancellation by YVC or safety concerns. Personal circumstances such as scheduling conflicts or personal illness will not be refunded.
