24 Jul Help send our YVC Summit Committee to South Carolina!
In June, Youth Central’s Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC) selected four exception youth volunteers to represent the Calgary chapter of YVC at the YVC Summit in Charleston, South Carolina this November!
YVC is a network of over 40 affiliated organizations across the U.S. and Canada, whose purpose is to connect youth with meaningful volunteer opportunities. Youth Central is proud to run YVC’s largest affiliate program, working with approximately 100 community partners to engage 550 youth volunteers in 700 volunteer opportunities each year, totaling around 25,000 volunteer hours.
The YVC Summit is a two-day conference for youth volunteers all over North America to network, share volunteer initiatives, and participate in a variety of workshops! They need your help to get there!
We’ve set up a special donation page for anyone who is willing to help our youth get to the Summit!
Thank you in advance for your support!
Meet the YVC Summit Committee!
"Volunteering with Youth Central has led me to meet some amazing people and gain unique experiences. Currently, I am a Youth Central volunteer and YAA blogger. Because of my volunteer work with Youth Central I won the Vimy Pilgrimage Award. I am ecstatic to be chosen for the YVC Summit. Being on the committee, I’ve already met so many great people! I want to attend the Summit to expand my volunteering community and to meet like-minded youth. I hope you consider our fundraiser and thank you in advance!""I can't wait to be able to attend Summit! Being on the YVC Summit Committee has been an amazing experience so far! With Youth Central and YVC, I am an active volunteer, a member of the YVC Steering Committee, a member of the Mayor’s Youth Council and a member on the International Youth Advisory Board with YVC Headquarters! I am ecstatic to meet even more youth volunteers across North America! Thank you so much for supporting us!"
"I’m so excited to be chosen for the YVC Summit committee for this year! I'm currently a YVC volunteer, senior volunteer, and YVC steering committee member. Through the past year, I've gained over 400 hours, countless friends, and have been part of planning the Youth Central graduation event and alumni panel. I want to go to the YVC Summit to share my love of volunteering with youth all around North America and exchange ideas on how to raise youth participation in our communities. I hope you will consider supporting our fundraiser!"
"Hello! I hope you’re doing well. I stand by everything Youth Central is and I have grown so much because of it! I’m a senior volunteer, a member of Mayor's Youth Council, a Youth Are Awesome blogger, and one of Youth Centrals Youth Photographers! Being able to meet so many incredible people while I volunteer has made me so much more confident and optimistic. At the YVC Summit, my fellow peers and I would be introduced to like-minded youth who want to make a difference from all across North America! Thank you for your consideration, have a good day!"
