Under the supervision of YVC adult team leaders, the participants take time to learn about the mission of each individual agency they will serve. Staff and participants discuss the goals of each project and establish work guidelines prior to project site arrival.  Each session is concluded with a reflection process, facilitated by a YMCA YVC Team Leader, who engage participants in meaningful group discussion and social justice activities.
