YVC Summit



Mark your calendars and join us for Summit 2018 in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina!

Youth volunteers, YVC staff and youth volunteer alumni are welcomed to this exciting weekend where we’ll celebrate youth volunteerism, share ideas on how to make our YVC programs even better and have a blast learning from one another. You won’t want to miss it!

Summit registration will open in April of 2018 but you can reserve your room now by following the link below.

When: Nov. 2-3. Summit 2018 will kick off Friday, Nov. 2, at 8 a.m. and will go through the evening of Saturday, Nov. 3.

Where: Charleston, SC, at the Hyatt Place Charleston/Historic District hotel. You can reserve your rooms at the conference rate of just $189 a night. Book here by Oct. 8, 2018, to lock in the early bird discount. You will need to arrange transportation from the airport to the hotel. This link will help make best decision for your group!

Price: Your Summit registration ticket is an all-access pass to two full days of learning, networking and fun! With it, you’ll have the opportunity to meet your peers and make new friends while celebrating and serving with some of the most passionate volunteers you’ll ever know. Each attendee will also receive meals, conference materials and a t-shirt included in their ticket price. Normally, a conference this amazing would cost $435. However, since the staff here at YVCHQ feels it is so important for youth and adults alike to attend, we’ve substantially subsidized the cost of admission to just $160 for adults and $135 for youth if registered by the early bird deadline on Oct. 8! Additional service fees will be applied to each registration.
