An organization that focuses on engaging youth in volunteering is coming to Terrace.
The Youth Volunteer Corps began in the United States, and Volunteer Terrace has recently become an affiliate.
Tania Millen is with Volunteer Terrace and says YVC is different from other volunteering opportunities for youth because this program engages them throughout the entire project.
Millen says she’s currently looking for youth who are ages eleven to 18, adults and other stakeholders to take part in the organization, and hopes to have the first project going by May.
She says volunteerism is important to youth because they learn and develop new skills, adding statistics show youth who volunteer are more likely to also do so as adults.
Anyone who is interested in participating can contact Tania Millen at: email@example.com, www.volunteerterrace.com or 250-638-1330.
