YVC Plants Trees

Looking for a way to create a healthy environment close to home? Join us as we plant trees! Trees help to clean the air, filter water, offset carbon, create shade, give birds a place to build a nest, enrich the soil, and provide food and shelter for small creatures. As part of a grant given by our Youth Advisory Board we will be planting trees at Blue Marsh to help enrich the environment.

Community Conversations for Change discussion group for Berks Catholic Students

Join your peers from Berks Catholic High School in this virtual discussion group to talk about difficult topics, such as racism, and come to a better understanding of the stories and perspectives of students who are different from you. This discussion group, supported by VOiCEup staff, is an extension of a Youth Volunteer Corps summer series developed to address racism and injustice in our community through education and dialogue which is initiated, supported, and facilitated by youth. The goal is to bring together people of different backgrounds and mindsets, and to engage in difficult conversations that facilitate understanding and promote both individual and community growth. This group is specifically for students of Berks Catholic High School. To work with us to develop a group for your school, contact us at
