involved with YVC
ANNOUNCEMENT, June 27, 2011:
YVC is being put on hold in order to look at program improvements
and ways to increase enrollment. We remain committed to the
goals of YVC and hope to have YVC return as a program option
for Camp Fire within the next year.
Are you a youth between the ages of 11-18?
Do you have extra time on your hands? Do you enjoy learning new things? Do you want to meet people? If any of these apply to you, Youth Volunteer Corps is the answer you’ve been looking for.
YVC, a program of Camp Fire USA, engages teams of youth age 11-18 in service opportunities that meet community needs, and are educational, challenging, and fun. All YVC projects are FREE. Learn about issues in your community. Make new friends! Have fun doing something meaningful!
Since 1992, King County youth have been coming together through YVC to change their community for the better. There are no requirements, it’s free to you, and priceless to the community. If you need a better reason to volunteer check out our "Why Volunteer" page.
YVC offers volunteer opportunities to youth all year around. Whether it’s painting a mural or organizing a canned food drive, you can always find a project you’re interested in, or create your own. Check out our projects to find out what kind of opportunities are available.
GETTING TO PROJECTS
Many of our projects are accessible by public transportation. A few projects will have van pick-ups in a centralized location. Team leaders will stay at the project’s end until all volunteers sign out.
HOW/WHEN TO SIGN UP
There is limited amount of space on each project, so sign up quickly. The projects are assigned on a first come, first serve basis. Read the list of projects, pick the ones you want, fill out the registration form, and mail the form to the address on the bottom of the page. Once we receive your registration form, we will send you a postcard telling you which project(s) you are in. You will then NOT hear anything from us until your team leader calls you about five days before the project! Please remember which projects you sign up for and keep the commitment.
