more than volunteering
Since 1987, Youth Volunteer Corps has witnessed countless youth whose lives have been transformed by service - resulting in 4.5 million volunteer hours.

Studies have found that youth who serve have an increased sense of personal control and self-esteem, enhanced development of identity and life skills including leadership, public speaking, dependability, job responsibility, and higher academic achievement.
Studies tracking youth who volunteer have found that youth can develop negative attitudes about service if they don’t feel that their efforts are making a difference. That's why YVC aims to ensure that every single youth has a positive experience volunteering through high-quality, team-based volunteer projects.
