Youth Volunteer Corps of Dane County (YVC)

The Youth Volunteer Corps is a group of young people (ages 13-18) who are passionate about volunteerism and making an impact in their community. The YVC will work together to promote youth volunteerism all across Dane County. The group will take a leadership role in planning, organizing and participating in two large service events: the Holiday Gift Drive for Teens (HGDT) in the winter and Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) in the spring.
