YVC’s 30th Anniversary
30 years ago, I believed that youth could be empowered to make a difference and that when they stepped forward, they could truly change the world. It was a risk. Few people thought that we’d be able to convince teenagers to volunteer over the summer instead of working a job. But we took the chance.
Three decades later more than 300,000 youth have volunteered with YVC in big cities, small towns and rural communities throughout North America.
Youth have visited the elderly, cleaned up parks, played with little kids and truly transformed communities. In the process, they’ve racked up a total of more than 4.5 million hours of service and been honored by mayors, governors and even presidents.
Join us in this 30th Anniversary year to celebrate the amazing accomplishments of our inspiring Youth Volunteers. I’m in awe of everything that youth have accomplished, but I’m even more amazed when I think of all that they will accomplish in the years to come. Join us throughout this year as we celebrate our inspiring Youth Volunteers.
