Since 1987, YVC Youth Volunteers around the country have served more than 4 million hours. Not only are community needs met, but youth are transformed through volunteering. In a recent survey of all YVC Youth Volunteers after serving at least 30 hours with YVC:
- 97% indicated volunteering helped them know more about their communities’ needs.
- 82% indicated their YVC project forced them to think differently.
- 93% indicated their YVC project helped them understand people who are different.
- 93% indicated their YVC project taught them something they didn’t know.
- 96% indicated they will continue to volunteer in the future.
