YVC:  This is Kai’s (15) second summer participating as a Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC) volunteer. He came back because he remembered that last year it felt really good to be doing something useful for his community. Over the school year he had some time to consider his YVC experience, “YVC taught me to be a better me. It has made me more aware of myself in the world, and of my privilege. Being part of YVC has allowed me to become more mindful as I move through the world.”
Expanding Horizons, Youth Volunteer Corp’s intensive summer program, provides week-long blocks of service learning projects. Participants travel to local non-profits and volunteer during the day, returning to the Y in the afternoon to reflect together as a group on the impact of their service. Youth Volunteer Corps introduces teens to the concept of social responsibility, and shows them how, though young, they can have a big impact on their community. Your donations to the Annual Campaign help make YVC possible for Kai, and his friends. Please help support the Y by giving to the 2019 Annual Campaign. You can do so online at www.annarborymca.org/give. Thank you. The Y TM. For a better us.TM

YVC:  “I was skeptical at first.” That’s Juliana (12) sharing her reaction to the news that her mother had signed her up for a week of Youth Volunteer Corps. “I thought I would just be picking up trash and that it would be boring.” In fact, she’s had a ball. She’s met some new friends, discovered new aspects of her community and herself. “I’m doing something that benefits other people, but at the same time I’m having fun, so I am benefiting too.”
