What Volunteers Do!

Youth in Action (YiA) volunteers are part of a diverse team of students working towards a year-long, youth-led project that benefits the community. The project provides youth with an opportunity to develop employable skills, leadership experience, and complete 60 volunteer hours. Youth meet in person for approximately 26 Saturdays to develop project ideas around one of the 17 sustainable goals developed by united nations, they work from home to complete project related tasks, and lead on executing a community project.
