YMCA Earth Service Corps
YMCA Earth Service Corps is an innovative youth–led program that gives teens opportunities to develop leadership skills and create a more sustainable future. Committed youth, YMCA staff, local teachers and adult volunteers work together to plan and carry out service learning projects that promote positive environmental and social change. Youth develop as leaders, learn about the environment, get involved with their communities and, most importantly, LEARN BY DOING!
Participating in YESC is a unique opportunity for youth and adults to work together to improve their communities. Adults act as mentors and advisors to the youth as they work side-by-side on environmental projects. Youth have fun and earn Service Learning Hours while working towards a healthier tomorrow.
