Are you between the ages of 11 and 18?

Do you enjoy learning new things?  Do you want to gain valuable experience?  Do you want to meet new people? Do you want to make a difference in the community? If any of these apply to you, then consider registering as a volunteer through The Volunteer Connection.

There are several ways to get involved:

Individual volunteers must be complete the registration process listed below. The current listing of volunteer opportunities for youth is also listed at the bottom of this page.

TVC Youth Advisory Council- This council consists of 8th through 12th grade students from area schools. The mission of this council is to address and serve the community's needs by empowering youth to better themselves and their community through volunteer service. The youth that serve on this council organize and carry out volunteer projects in the community. You must be a registered volunteer to participate in the group. Please contact volcor@nckvc.org for more information. 

 Group Projects - If your church or youth group is looking for a community service project, contact the Volunteer Connection. We will work to match your group with a need that fits your group's size, abilities and desired outcome.
