Kirksville Area Chamber of Commerce - Event Information


Event Name:Youth Volunteer Corps - Volunteering with the Green Thumb Garden at Ray Miller Elementary
Description:

Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC) will be joining the Green Thumb Garden at Ray Miller Elementary School. The youth will assist with basic garden tasks, setting up new features at the primary school's garden, and possibly helping out during a community skills-share event.

YVC projects engage teams of 8-10 youth ages 11-18 who volunteer their time to help local nonprofits and learn more about real issues in their communities. A trained and screened adult staff member supervises youth, leads them in icebreakers and team building activities, and facilitates meaningful reflection.
