AmeriCorps Youth in Service is a collaborative national service program coordinated by Community Youth Services in Olympia. This program provides the opportunity for 20 people who self-identify as youth-age (over 18 years old) to become involved in the community by providing support to youth and families equitably.
AmeriCorps members serve throughout Olympia and Thurston County at local schools and community-based nonprofit organizations. Equity-focused service includes mentoring, tutoring, and facilitating social skills building activities for youth. Members also provide outreach to families and recruit volunteers at their sponsor sites.
