Jessica Vu Receives YVC Legacy Award and Scholarship!

A big Congratulations to Jessica Vu, who has been awarded the Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC) Legacy Award in recognition of volunteering over 1,500 hours in support of Calgary and surrounding communities. So far, Jessica has accumulated 1,626 hours of community service during her three years with Youth Central’s YVC program

Each year, Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC) recognizes youth volunteers across North America for volunteering 100, 500 and 1,000 hours through YVC. Due to Jessica’s remarkable hard work and dedication, YVC created the brand new Legacy Award to recognize her achievement. This year, Youth Central was honoured to have CEO of YVC, Tracy Hale, present the award to Jessica

Jessica has also been awarded the 2018 Don and Jean Sloan Scholarship. The $1,000 scholarship is open to active YVC volunteers who have demonstrated excellence in volunteerism and leadership and who are committed to making a difference in their communities. Only one youth volunteer in North America receives the annual award.

“Our youth volunteers make an impact in every community they serve but Jessica has truly gone above and beyond,” said Tracy Hale, CEO of YVC. “We are so inspired by her service  and can’t wait to see what she accomplishes in the years to come.”

Tracy presented the award to Jessica on May 26th as she continued to serve Calgary during the West Hillhurst “Spruce up the Neighbourhood” Spring festival and community clean-up day.
