YVC Summer of Service Learning Institute #2
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 its second Summer of Service Learning Institute from July 12th-July 15th 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 team building, leadership and interpersonal activities. Participants will spend the next two days of the Institute in the community 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 the agencies they visited during their two days in the community- they will then present the 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).
This Learning Institute is part of the Berks Social Justice Youth Initiative and is funded by the "You Are Here" Grant from the Berks County Community Foundation."
