Youth Volunteer Corps of America
AmeriCorps National Direct FY 2011(New)
A. Executive Summary : Youth Volunteer Corps of America (YVCA) is requesting support for 28 full-time, 11 half-time and 18 minimum-time AmeriCorps (AC) members at 17 affiliate sites. This request includes 20 half-time and 13 minimum-time Education Award Only (EAO). Each YVC affiliate site provides team-based community service-learning projects for Youth Volunteers aged 11-18. The problem to be addressed is the need for programming that decreases high-risk behaviors for youth out of school (after school, weekends and summer).
