YVC Summer Service Weeks 2013
What a great experience for me and my friends! It felt so good to do something knowing that it will help other people and I will most definitely be looking forward to more opportunities in the future!
—2013 Summer Service Weeks Volunteer
A BIG thank you to the 440 youth volunteers who participated in HON's four weeks of youth summer service!
These youth volunteers collectively contributed 1,100 hours to local nonprofits, making a $23,600 economic impact, according to Independent Sector research. All 50 service learning projects focused on four impact areas - environmental awareness, homelessness, hunger, and health and wellness. Each project was run by one of six summer youth leaders, who collectively served 262 hours!
Volunteers completed an impressive array of tasks this summer, including building three wheelchair ramps for area homeowners, packing food and medical supplies for both local and international neighbors, preparing and serving meals to people struggling with homelessness, and much more. Way to go youth - YOU ROCK!
