Youth Volunteer Corps of Corvallis Oregon-YVC

Youth Volunteer Corps of Corvallis Oregon-YVC Corvallis Youth Volunteer Corp is a fun and exciting way for youth to get involved in their communities through volunteering!

The Youth Volunteer Corps is national program and Corvallis is lucky to have a program supported by Corvallis Parks and Recreation. The YVC assembles a Youth Advisory Board who helps make choices about the volunteer experiences. All local youth 12-18 are welcome to volunteer their time on projects ranging from gardening, literacy, poverty, and so much more. If it is important to the youth of Corvallis then it is important to YVC.

Mission: We create volunteer opportunities to address community needs and to inspire youth for a lifetime commitment to service.

Summer 2019 YVC came to a successful conclusion with 143 youth contributing 5253 hours of work in nine sessions stretching from June through August. Using Oregon minimum wage rate, all that effort was valued at $59,100!
Our top YVC volunteers of the summer are Judah and Zoey! Congratulations to both of you!

Judah has participated in YVC since July 2018 – his first project was working at Willamette Community Gardens. He has worked 168 hours since his first project with 78 of those hours this past summer!
His attitude reflects YVC’s primary goals: β€œIt’s fun to meet and help out people, while giving back to the community,” Judah said. Judah’s leaders are appreciative of his help. β€œJudah has lots of experience and is willing to guide other team members. He relates and communicates well with all members of the team,” team leader Wesley McLean said.

Zoey started her YVC career in Summer 2017, serving more than 510 hours! This past summer, she donated 138 hours. Zoey says she has never met a project she did not like. β€œI really enjoy every part of the YVC experience. I enjoy volunteering, no matter what we do,” she said. Her leaders praise her work and attitude. β€œZoey’s an extremely strong worker, team member and volunteer. She’s a great communicator, dependable and not afraid to take the hard jobs. She repeatedly steps up and encourages others to do the same,” YVC leader Wesley McLean said.

What are you doing to celebrate MLK Jr today?! YVC and some awesome students from College Hill got together and made I Have a Dream posters for three of our local elementary schools! We visited 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classrooms, had each student create their own dream bubble and now the posters are on display for the whole school to see!

Former Youth Volunteer Corps leader moves ahead! Some of You probably know Daniel Comer, who is now in grad school at Northwestern University. Here he is working as an analyst on the university's sports talk television show. Our people "do good."
Thank you again to all of the volunteers at Youth Volunteer Corps who helped us create and display homemade decorations for our Mother's Day event! The decorations were displayed down the hallways so that guests and residents could see them as they walked down to the main event. They were a big hit! :)
