Celebrating thirty-five years makes this event an extraordinary occasion. So, in addition to expressing our gratitude, we intend to use this Summit as an opportunity to build momentum and excitement that will take us into a future of tremendous growth for YVC.

Summit 2022


Summit is open to all YVC Program Directors, Executive Directors, Team Leaders, and Youth Volunteers and will also be open to YVC Alumni and donors this year.


A one-of-a-kind experience with your YVC family. We will spend time learning from each other, celebrating each other’s successes, and plotting our way forward. Summit is where we grow together and connect with others across the network.


More than ever, we need the strength of our community to tackle the dynamic and changing needs of running a youth development program.
