Youth Volunteer Corps
Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC) is a team-based, diverse, structured, and flexible service-learning program. The mission of the YVC is to create volunteer opportunities to address community needs and to inspire youth for a lifetime commitment to service. YVC not only provides youth with critical leadership and job skills for future employment, but it also offers improved life trajectories. The program addresses unmet needs in the community and has positive ripple effects for countless local agencies and residents.
As an affiliate of YVC, Family Wellness provides volunteer project opportunities for all kids’ ages 11-18. We have a variety of opportunities year round and participants can choose which opportunities they would like to participate in. Registration for all activities is free! All participants that complete 8 hours of service in a 3 month time frame will earn a free Family Wellness membership! Membership benefits will continually extend as long as participants maintain service hour requirements. For more information contact Karsyn at 701-234-5996 or at Karsyn.Wendt@sanfordhealth.org.
