Many see volunteering as nothing more than 40 hours that they need to fulfill to graduate. YNA aims to make clear that that is not the case.
Additionally, youth can connect and collaborate with other talented individuals. If you’ve been at a camp or at an event, you certainly know that you can meet not only other determined students, but also potential employers. When you’re volunteering, you’re always making new connections.
“Volunteering allows youth to discover new interests and passions.”
Finally, we believe that volunteering allows youth to discover new interests and passions. YNA has been present at several different events and with many different organizations, from outdoor festivals to professional conferences. Who knows? Many of our members have discovered something new.
