At Youth Volunteer Corps, we take the health, welfare, and safety of all of our staff, volunteers, communities, and partners seriously. As you know, on March 11, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak was characterized as a pandemic by the World Health Organization. We are closely monitoring daily updates and recommendations from the CDC.
At this time, all projects for summer 2020 are tentative, pending updated guidance from national, state, and local health officials. Planning continues with modifications including limiting projects to no more than 8 youth and cancelling projects hosted with agencies who engage populations at high-risk for infection. Registration is open for projects and all fees for any project cancelled due to the Coronavirus will be refunded in full. If your child or an immediate family member is not feeling well, we ask that the youth volunteer stay home. YVC encourages you to follow the CDC, DHEC, WHO, and local government recommendations for mitigation. Please note: All in person projects scheduled through May 15 are cancelled. Virtual projects are available. Sign up today!
