Youth Volunteer Corps Coming to Terrace

A new branch of a youth service program will be launching in Terrace. The Youth Volunteer Corps is a network of programs throughout the U.S. and Canada focused on creating meaningful service opportunities for young people between the ages of 11 and 18.

Tania Millen of Volunteer Terrace says the program allows students to do Volunteer work that interests them.

"It's youth volunteerig based on service learning.There's a learning component, as well as a reflection component, with stakeholders in the community who are interested in something that youth are interested in. So it's actually youth-driven, they come up with a project."

Volunteer Terrace is currently looking for any young people who may be interested in partaking, as well as external agencies or organizations who could provide volunteering opportunies or lead activities.
