There’s Nothing to Do in…
“I’m bored. There’s nothing to do in…(fill in the blank with your town’s name).”
No matter whether you filled in that blank with Los Angeles or Peculiar, Missouri, you’ve probably heard a teenager say that—or said it yourself.
Summer break is just around the corner, and parents are looking for fun, educational and rewarding activities for their kids to get involved in this summer to ensure that the break is filled with more than just sleeping in.
For families in the 31 communities that currently have YVC programs, the answer is easy. YVC Summer of Service is the best way we know of to have a great time over the summer while meeting new friends, learning about your community and making a difference. Check out our “Find a YVC” page to see if there’s a YVC in your area.
Don’t see your community on the list? We’re currently searching across the U.S. and Canada for new communities who need a YVC. We dream of the day that every single youth has the opportunity to volunteer with their local YVC.
Here’s how you can help us get there:
1. Help us launch a YVC. Whether you’re interested in leading the effort to launch a YVC yourself, or whether you’d prefer simply writing a letter or speaking to community officials advocating for YVC, we need your help. Contact Paul Marksbury, YVC’s Affiliate Services Coordinator, and we’ll help you every step of the way—no matter how involved you’d like to be.
2. Donate to YVC to help fund our expansion. Any amount helps.
3. Be the first person to spread the word when YVC comes to your community. Sign up for our monthly newsletter below to so you’re the first to know when we arrive in your hometown:
