We celebrate every time a YVC program launches in a new community, envisioning how countless youth will be transformed by life-changing service experiences. Each year at the YVC Summit, we honor one of the new programs that launched during the previous year that got off to an especially strong start.

Congratulations YVC of Reading for earning the 2017 New Affiliate of the Year Award! YVC of Reading, hosted by VOiCEup Berks got off to an incredible start with 221 youth serving 1186hours in their first year. YVC of Reading hosted 63 projects benefiting 21 local agencies last year.

This program’s commitment to excellence elevates the quality of the entire YVC network. The leadership of the host organization are lifelong volunteers themselves and their ability to mine their personal networks for resources and support has set the stage for long-lasting success.

Congratulations to YVC of Reading! We cannot wait to celebrate with your program as you continue to grow and serve your community.
