    CONTACT INFORMATION

  • PROGRAM SIGN-UP

  • As the world continues to be affected by COVID-19, our programs still aren’t back to “normal.” BUT in the spirit of ADAPTING, we’ve created as many opportunities as possible for you to still be involved with YC—both in person and from the comfort of your own home.

    Below you will find a list of all of our programs happening this SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER. All in-person programs will take place OUTSIDE with SMALLER groups of people to mitigate risks surrounding Coronavirus. As the fall goes on, we will evaluate possible indoor activities and send out a second calendar later in the season for NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER.

    PROGRAM OPTIONS:
    Sign up for EVERYTHING you’re interested in volunteering with and YC will ASSIGN YOU where help is most needed. You can choose ANY program(s), but as always, please note locations and restrictions. Unlike other seasons, you will NOT be guaranteed the “at least half of the program days you sign up for.” We will instead do our best to share the wealth and give everyone a chance to volunteer in some capacity this fall. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns once you’re received your official schedule.

    AROUND TOWN OUTDOOR ADVENTURES:
    Whether it’s hiking and fishing, archery and geocache, or photography and nature crafts, there’s something fun for EVERYONE on EVERY side of town! These programs will be VERY SMALL with no more than 4 participants and 4 volunteers at each activity.

    VIRTUAL PROGRAMS:
    Held through Zoom (video conferencing software). Pants optional! Please note age restrictions for YELP.

    IN-PERSON PROGRAMS:
    You will have an assigned partner as always at YC, but to maximize the distance between individuals, you will NOT be helping them hands-on. If participants do need assistance adapting any activity the YC staff will serve in that capacity. YOUR ROLE will be to help participants SOCIALLY this season, serving as a friend, mentor and coach (from a safe 6 feet away!)

NOTE: THAT EMAIL IS NOT IS NOT YOUR OFFICIAL SCHEDULE! After the registration deadline, we will assign volunteers to programs based on our need for help at each activity and the number of other volunteers who have requested those days. You will receive your OFFICIAL SCHEDULE in the mail before programs begin for the season. Please let us know if you have any questions at (440) 892-1001. THANK YOU!
