The Youth Involvement Program is designed to build self-esteem and a sense of community in the youth of our community by helping them locate and be successful in age appropriate volunteer opportunities.
Families or indivduals can contact our office to speak to one of the staff about volunteer opportunities.
Families and youth are encouraged to participate in one of our national days of service:
kids care clubs
Kids Care Clubs provide youth in a classroom setting with meaningful, hands-on volunteer opportunities to help others in the community. The volunteer opportunities are directly connected to academic content standards/learning goals. They help students recognize the value and power in their own lives and realize their actions make a difference. Most of the clubs are school-based, and occur during the school day.
A Service Connections Tour is an informative, educational tour of Erie County agencies that not only teaches students the needs of the community, but introduces them to the solutions the community provides for those needs. This tour is offered to students from 4th grade up to 12th grade and can be for a half day or full day including lunch.
