Mission Statement

Youth Community Service (YCS) engages young people from diverse mid-peninsula communities in meaningful service-based learning. YCS students build leadership and life skills, empathy for the needs of others, and a sense of connectedness, purpose and efficacy, while making a positive difference in the lives of those around them.


Youth Community Service (YCS) was founded in 1990 as a collaboration between the cities of Palo Alto and East Palo Alto, and the Palo Alto Unified and Ravenswood School Districts. Youth Community Service actively works with youth and community leaders to engage in a wide range of public service projects throughout the Mid-Peninsula region of the San Francisco Bay Area. Over three decades, we’ve developed a keen focus in three intersecting domains: Peer Leadership,Social-Emotional Learning and Wellness, Service-Based Learning.

We’re always looking for new partnerships and especially youth looking to get involved and bring about positive change in their community. To learn more about YCS, please visit our website
