2023 Scholarship Recipient: Caroline Lubbe
Caroline, a volunteer with YVC in Kansas City, served 343 hours with YVC while balancing a variety of other volunteer and extracurricular activities. Caroline joined YVC as a sixth grader and quickly became a leader in the program through the Youth Advisory Board. Caroline expressed that YVC taught her about leadership, flexibility, got her out of her comfort zone, and created a love for service within her that is reflected in her daily actions. Throughout her 7 years of YVC service, Caroline served as a member of the YVCKC Youth Advisory Board and was Executive Team Co-Chair of the International Youth Advisory Board, while also volunteering for other Kansas City community organizations.
Caroline plans to attend Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri in the fall to study cognitive neuroscience and medical humanities.
