Youth Volunteer Corps

Youth Volunteer Corps 

The Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC) is an elite group of high school students that are hand selected to lead and mentor 1st - 8th grade students in enrichment activities in our UCC Summer Recreation Program. The UCC Summer Recreational Program offers summer activities including sports, art, games, as well as field trips to the museum, lakefront, local parks and swimming pools!

Benefits of Participating in Youth Volunteer Corps
In addition to Summer recreational responsibilities, YVC members are given workshops in the following areas:

  • Career & College Readiness (resume building, ACT Prep, writing college essays, college tours, etc...)
  • Character and Leadership Development (soft skill communication, team building, etc...)
  • Financial Literacy (budgeting, personal banking, college financing resources, etc...)

In appreciation for, and recognition of the significant contributions of YVC members to the UCC Family, the Pre-College Department will provide free transportation and discounted tickets to a fun-filled day at Six Flags!
