Attend YVC Summit with us!

Applications for Summit 2020 are now open! Youth Central is interested in bringing up to four youth volunteers (numbers may vary) to the 2020 YVC Summit. The YVC Summit is held every year, bringing together youth volunteers, volunteer alumni, and YVC staff to celebrate youth volunteerism, share ideas, and create a global network of like-minded people.

This year YVC Summit will be in Queens, New York on October 16th and 17th. 

Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC) began as a youth summer camp in 1987 in Kansas City. Today, YVC is a network of over 40 affiliated organizations across the U.S. and Canada. 

Youth Central is proud to run YVCs largest affiliate program, working with approximately 100 community partners to engage 500 youth volunteers in 700 volunteer opportunities each year, totaling around 25,000 volunteer hours.

If you are interested in participating you’ll need to do three things to apply.

1. Check out the YVC Summit Overview and have your parents/guardians read through this as well. 

2. Fill out the YVC Summit application form.

3. Have your parent/guardian complete the acknowledgement form


We need you to complete all three steps by May 11 2020 at 11:59 pm in order to be eligible to attend. If you have questions, please reach out to the Youth Volunteer Corps Program Coordinator.

Please note: With the current COVID-19 pandemic, we realize it’s difficult to look this far ahead and consider travelling. At the time of writing (April 2020) YVC Headquarters is currently still planning on hosting the Summit in Queens, NY in October 2020. In the event that the 2020 Summit is cancelled, our fundraising efforts will be put towards the next YVC Summit.
