The Achievers program also connects young people to career opportunities, providing a positive vision for the future along with strong educational support.

The Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC) is a way for young people to help others, have some fun, and learn something while doing it. Volunteers will learn about their community, job opportunities, and themselves by participating in exciting, challenging, and worthwhile service projects in the Plymouth/Canton area.
Leaders Clubs help develop youth as leaders while fostering a culture of service. With adult advisors, teens have role models and mentors who can have a positive impact on their lives as they grow in their desire and ability to be a positive force in the Downriver community.
