Completion of a training session is required of all volunteers new to YC. Sessions are open prior to each program season…but act quickly because SPACE IS LIMITED!
Sessions are VIRTUAL, created by YC staff to prepare new volunteers to assist participants at activities. Trainees will have a specific time period to watch a SERIES OF VIDEOS that discuss the mission and culture of Youth Challenge; our participants and YC’s emphasis on someone’s ability over their disability; the rules and responsibilities for each YC volunteer; best practices for adapting and working with our participants; our program sign-up process and MORE! There’ll be a quick QUIZ after each video that volunteers must pass in order to complete their training.
Once we receive your registration for the training sessions you will be sent more information, including direct links to the training videos and a PDF of our training packet.
After completing this virtual training, new volunteers will be placed on our mailing list to receive seasonal news and program sign-up info season after season.
TRAINING REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN. New volunteers can begin helping at WINTER programs starting in January. REGISTER BELOW. Training must be completed by December 31st.
