    The Downriver Family YMCA's Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC) School Year of Service program is a youth-driven volunteer program for young people in grades 6-12. YVC engages youth in service learning projects that are challenging, rewarding and educational to serve the needs of the community and promote a lifetime ethic of service. YVC team leaders lead service projects and teach the importance of the organization's mission. All volunteers will receive a free t-shirt and are encouraged to wear them to volunteer opportunities. Each day will begin and end at the Downriver Family YMCA. Transportation to offsite volunteer opportunities will be provided by way of bus.  Program Registration is currently open and is ongoing throughout the school year. While there is no fee to participate, a separate  registration is required  to be part of the Youth Volunteer Corps program and for each YVC community service project event that youth plan to attend. For online registration, use the keyword “YVC”. Events will be posted and open for registration once the date of that event has been confirmed. All youth will receive a certificate of volunteered hours for each event they attend.
