Youth Volunteer Corps of the Capital Area (YVC) promotes a lifetime service ethic in young people, encouraging a broader sense of responsibility to society.
YVC serves the needs of the 10-parish community by effectively engaging teenagers in service projects that are challenging, rewarding, educational, and safe. For teenagers, volunteering brings a new sense of confidence, self-gratification and a good model for interacting in the world. Volunteering also enables young people to develop new communication, career building and social skills that will be useful in other facets of their lives.
