Who We Are:
The Youth Volunteer Corps of Greater Kansas City (YVCKC) is part of a national nonprofit network called the Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC). YVC offers youth between the ages of 11 and 18 the opportunity to improve their community through volunteering.
The Youth Volunteer Corps of Greater Kansas City is one of more than 45 affiliates of the YVC. YVC was founded right here in Kansas City! To learn more about the National Program, visit their website.
Why Focus on Youth?
The youth in our community are our future leaders! YVC realizes how important it is to get youth involved in the community at a young, impressionable age. Youth volunteers are more likely to continue volunteering as adults and making an impact in their community.
Volunteering also allows youth to meet people who are from different backgrounds. Exposing youth to new environments and people helps open their eyes to issues that may be occurring within the community.
We strongly believe that youth are our future and they have the capability of making a difference right now, right here in the Kansas City Community!
The Goals of:
We create volunteer opportunities to address community needs and to inspire youth for a lifetime commitment to service.
We strongly believe that youth have the capability of making a difference right here in the Kansas City community.
