We are so excited to work alongside Youth Central as they do some more amazing work with youth in Calgary!
Youth Central is a nonprofit organization in Calgary that inspires, engages, and celebrates youth through community participation. Our purpose is to encourage youth to participate in shaping a vibrant community.

Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC) is Youth Central's largest program. We partner with over 100 local nonprofit agencies to provide over 700 volunteer opportunities every year to youth ages 12-18. Every volunteer project is supervised by a Youth Central staff member, and is comprised of six or more youth volunteers - thus, a great way to meet new people and make friends! There is no minimum commitment required - sign up for as many or as few projects as you’d like and select the dates/times/project types that work for you.
