THE NEED IS STILL GREAT! Join us for 24 hours on May 5, 2022 Your support on Give STL Day allows Youth Volunteer Corps to increase diversity in youth demographics engaged in volunteer and leadership opportunities to make a positive impact in their communities. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many youth have suffered losses in isolation and more than ever need community with a purpose to engage their minds, hearts and talents for the greater good. Youth Volunteer Corps is a safe way for youth ages 11-18 to experience the individual and collective impact of serving others - both through direct and indirect service experiences. Our youth engage in service projects that are challenging, rewarding and educational to meet the needs of their community! WHAT IS GIVE STL DAY?
