Youth Engaged in Service (YES) (Ages 12-20)
The Youth Engaged in Service Volunteer Program provides the opportunity for young people ages 12-20 to contribute and participate in the community. Members will provide service by direct interaction with children, senior citizens, low-income families, persons who are mentally and/or physically challenged, and charitable organizations.
Spending time with members of the community will help young people to experience personal growth and gain an understanding of their community. Through volunteer service, young people will learn new skills, meet a variety of people and share their talents and special skills with those less fortunate.
For more information please contact Antonella Stravalaci, Director of Volunteers at 716.631.7210 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
