    CONTACT INFORMATION

  • PROGRAM SIGN-UP

  • This summer, things will look A LOT different at YC, but since we're all about adapting we've created as many opportunities as possible for you to still be involved--both in person and from the comfort of your own home.

    VIRTUAL PROGRAMS:
    Held through ZOOM (video conferencing software). Sign up for whatever you're interested in helping with--just how you would register for any normal program--and we will assign you based on space available. Please note age restrictions for YELP.

    IN-PERSON PROGRAMS:
    Due to the safety measures we're implementing to mitigate the risks surrounding COVID-19, we will be keeping our in-person programs VERY SMALL and limiting the amount of hands-on help you'll be giving to participants.

    These programs will start in July and will include two sessions per week of outdoor SOCIAL activities. This will allow us to maximize the number of people who get to come this summer while keeping consistency at programs and reducing the possible spread of germs.

    TO SIGN UP, please select the sessions that you are ABLE to attend (note: you MUST be able to attend BOTH days). You will then be placed into ONE session for the summer. (Yes, you read that right--you'll only get to come to ONE two-day session).

    METROPARKS MEET-UPS:
    These will be VERY SMALL (roughly 2 participants, 2 volunteers, and 2 staff) and very casual meet-ups in various MetroPark locations throughout Northeast Ohio. We will gather socially to hike, walk, talk, etc. We will provide limited transportation for participants.
    LOCATIONS TBD--depending on which participants sign up and where they live. Please indicate the DAYS you are able to attend and the SIDE(S) OF TOWN you're able to travel to. We will do our best to fit you into ONE but we can't guarantee that everyone will get to come.
  • Sign up for everything you're interested in helping with and YC will ASSIGN you where help is needed. You can choose ANY program but, as always, please note locations and restrictions.

    Unlike other seasons, you will NOT be guaranteed at least half of the program days you sign up for. We will do our best to share the wealth and give everyone a chance to volunteer in some capacity this summer.
  • SPECIAL PROGRAMS

  • SOCIALLY DISTANT SERVICE

  • The following is a list of opportunities to volunteer OUTSIDE of normal programs. Please mark what you're interested in helping with and we'll send you more details.

  • NOTES

  • FORM SUBMISSION

  • That's it! Easy peasy! 🙂 Once you hit SUBMIT, a confirmation email will be sent to you recapping the programs you just marked down.

    NOTE: THAT EMAIL 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!
