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.

This weekend we had another fantastic project with one of our favorite local organizations, Heartland Humane Society!

Volunteers learned more about local ecosystems and land stewardship principles while helping to maintain a great public area.

We beat the heat this second week! Week 2 of our Summer of Service brought YVC to some widespread projects. Our volunteers worked at many educational programs this week like Chintimini Wildlife Center (@cwcwildlife), Maxtivity’s Messy Art Camp (@imaxtivity), and a YVC favorite Green Acres Farm Sanctuary (@greenacresfarmsanctuary)!

That’s a wrap on week 1!! Our volunteers did some phenomenal work at local shelters, food banks, parks, day camps, community gardens, and wrapped the week off at Yaquina Head Lighthouse in Newport. The heat was strong, but definitely not as strong as these workers! Our leaders are excited for the rest of the summer and especially more photo opportunities with #flatdavid ☀️#YVCCorvallis #youthvolunteercorps #youthvolunteers

‼️New blog post‼️

For many of us, we can pinpoint several moments in life that significantly influenced the way we live. Vansh, YVC volunteer and member of YVC’s International Youth Advisory Board, took a moment to reflect on his YVC journey and told us why he has made a lifetime commitment to service.

Happy International Women’s Day! Today is about honoring the accomplishments of women and joining together to fight for gender equality. YVC is committed to serving the unmet needs in their communities, many of which often disproportionately affect women. In the United States, women are more likely than men to suffer from poverty and food insecurity, and they more commonly experience depression and anxiety. YVC stands with these women and celebrates their diversity and strength, today and every day. #internationalwomensday

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! :)
