Youth are not our future; they are our present! How do we engage youth in meaningful service in their communities? In this session, we will explore how to create important service opportunities for youth, how to engage youth in ways that matter to them, and how to overcome challenges facing the youth development sector. Learn how Youth Volunteer Corps has translated their 30 years of youth service to virtual platforms during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Attendees will explore elements of meaningful service including youth leadership, social activities, identifying community needs, and more. Attendees will leave with case studies of how Youth Volunteer Corps engages youth in virtual volunteering.
Target Audience for your session: Anyone who works with youth or works with organizations that work with youth.
Youth Volunteer Corps creates volunteer opportunities to address community needs and to inspire youth for a lifetime commitment to service. Founded in 1987, YVC engages youth ages 11-18 in meaningful service-learning activities across the US and Canada.
