In 2019, VYCC fielded 12 Community Crews across our Corps, employing over 75 youth!As a way to celebrate their accomplishments, each Community Crew hosted a Meet-Up at their project site where community members could meet them, see their work, and learn more. It was a great way for Corps Members to gain valuable public speaking skills and for locals to be wowed (and thank the crews).“Each VYCC Community Crew member puts in hundreds of hours of hard work in the communities they serve. Meet-ups are an opportunity to showcase their efforts while connecting with community members who will utilize VYCC-built trails, bridges, and boardwalks for years to come,” remarked Daniel Schmidt, Program Officer.”
