YouthSERVE is dedicated to connecting youth, ages 11-17, with rewarding volunteer projects across Santa Cruz County. We connect local youth who have a passion to help those in need with meaningful opportunities to do so.
A Program of the Volunteer Center of Santa Cruz County, YouthSERVE was established in 1993 to encourage youth ages 11-18 to be active participants in their community through activities they create, develop and implement. We also train college students to serve as mentors helping youth shape their community service goals and ideas. Through targeted programming, YouthSERVE encourages youth leadership and decision making, values community voice, fosters civic stewardship, and provides opportunity for cross cultural connections.
