Volunteering is a powerful way to make our communities stronger. We know systemic change only happens when we all participate. This is why Every year, on the first Saturday of March, YVC Affiliates across the globe volunteer as part of YVC DAY. The theme changes yearly, but the desire to positively impact communities through service-learning as a team does not change. Youth Volunteer Corps values the youth voice, and YVC Day is one of many ways we provide impactful leadership opportunities. Our International Youth Advisory Board presents ideas and decides on the theme. The youth members develop all the pieces of a YVC Day Toolkit so our affiliates have resources available.
March 2, 2024, Youth Volunteer Corps will focus on “Kindness.” Our youth felt the need to overcome what they describe as a negative world. All YVC programs are invited to plan a YVC Day project! Now more than ever, there is an urgent need for a more thoughtful approach to responding to and serving within our communities. All of us can make positive changes!
We are always excited to see our affiliates engaged in projects that help youth connect with people and groups who provide new perspectives. We believe everyone has a gift, talent, ability, or resources that can be used tangibly to help other people in need.
