Youth Volunteer Corps of Alpena
Posted By: Catherine Knoch (July 23, 2020)
Youth Volunteer Corps in Alpena is a program focused on creating volunteer opportunities to address community needs and to inspire youth for a lifetime commitment to service. YVC is hosted by the Boys & Girls Club of Alpena locally and is one of dozens of YVC programs around the U.S. and Canada devoted to youth service. The youth volunteers go through our program to give back to the community, gain friendships and earn credit for school. Due to COVID-19, we have been limited with the types of service that we can complete, however the youth are still committed to help our community. Some of the projects that we are currently working on are building garden beds, making bed mats for the homeless, and adopting a local park. This contribution will allow us to enhance the quality of our program and help us have a bigger impact in our community.
