What You'll Get

The Issue: Summer Opportunities for Youth in Watsonville

The Santa Cruz Volunteer Center established the Watsonville Junior Volunteers program to engage young people in enriching activities such as community service, educational field trips, and college-preparedness workshops.

The Campaign: Funding Educational Field Trip for Volunteers

If this Grassroots campaign raises $500, then YouthServe can send 25 youths on a field trip to The Tech Museum to reward them for participating in a six-week volunteer program. Each additional $500 raised will fund a similar field trip for 25 more young volunteers in the next program. Any funds raised more than $1,000 will go toward distributing T-shirts to the volunteers.

As part of the Watsonville Junior Volunteers program, youth serve 12 hours per week over a period of six weeks from June through August. During the program, they contribute 1,500 hours of their time at local nonprofit agencies that address a variety of social issues, including hunger and homelessness, child development, the arts, and animal welfare. Volunteers also attend three educational workshops on job readiness and civic engagement.
