Volunteer Opportunities/Charity Events
Youth Volunteer Corps 2022-23
In case you are unfamiliar with us, we engage youth in team-based service experiences that build life and work skills while inspiring a lifetime ethic of service. Our vision is communities defined by compassion, selflessness, and respect for others.
YVC projects engage teams of 8-10 youth ages 11-18 who volunteer their time to help local nonprofits while learning more about real issues in their communities. A trained and screened adult staff member supervises youth, leads them in icebreakers and team building activities, and facilitates meaningful reflection.
On September 10th from 10:30-1:30, we will be beautifying the garage doors on the service bays at the Empire Market with a new coat of paint. We will be using Downtown Joplin Alliance Colors in preparation for Arts Fest.
We only have ten spots available, so youth should register at yvcjoplin.org if they would like to participate. Youth MUST register online to participate! Unfortunately, we can't accommodate youth who show up without going through our website.
Let's start this year off strong with some service to our community.
If you have any questions, please let me know. Also, please feel free to forward this to anyone you think may be interested!
