AmeriCorps Youth in Service is a collaborative national service program coordinated by Community Youth Services in Olympia. This results-driven program provides the opportunity for 20 people who are 18-25 years old to become involved in the community by providing support to youth and families at-risk.
AmeriCorps members serve throughout Olympia and Thurston County at local schools and community-based nonprofit organizations. Service responsibilities include mentoring, tutoring, and facilitating social skills building activities for youth at risk. Members also provide outreach to families and recruit volunteers for their sponsor sites.
