YCS programs engage youth in community service activities that bring increased awareness of community needs while promoting the development of community service self-efficacy and positive emotional/behavioral health. Whether participating in a school club, a leadership program, a living skills class, or a summer camp, students will have fun while connecting with fellow students and community members.
Students, YCS staff, and community members will work together to make an impact on their school and/or community. Students will develop leadership skills, work with people from diverse backgrounds, and develop a commitment to community service.
