YVC Summer of Service Learning Institute
The YVC Summer of Service Learning Institute is a week-long day camp based entirely on service learning with education on community issues through visits to local non-profit organizations and the development of a youth-led service project at the end of the week.
YVC of Reading will be holding the first of two Summer of Service Learning Institutes from June 21st- June 24th, 2021, 9 AM - 3 PM daily. During this time youth will be exposed to a curriculum designed to enhance leadership abilities, expand communication and problem-solving skills, as well as engage students in direct and indirect service-learning opportunities. The first day of the Institute will be spent at the Goggleworks engaging participants in teambuilding, leadership and interpersonal activities. Participants will spend the next two days of the Institute in the community – one day at Hope Rescue Mission and one day at a local horse sanctuary -- gaining firsthand knowledge of community needs and ways in which they can help. Participants will conclude the week again at the Goggleworks, creating a service project designed to assist one of these agencies and presenting information they learned throughout the week to their parents/guardians. The camp will be open to middle school students (rising 7th, 8th, and 9th graders). The cost of the Summer of Service Learning Insitute is $125.
