Are you eager to make a positive impact on your community?
Do you want to make new friends, build your confidence and have some fun?
Join the Youth Volunteer Crew (YVC) at the Employment + Education Centre (EEC). Our volunteer program was designed to enrich the lives of youth by helping them contribute positively to the community. We have many opportunities for youth between the ages of 13 and 24. You are sure to find something that meets your interests. In addition to making friends and enhancing their self confidence, our youth volunteers gain community involvement hours towards high school graduation as well as valuable work experience for their resumes!
EEC’s Youth Volunteer Crew (formerly Youth Volunteer Corps) offers exciting and educational opportunities in a fun, team environment while providing service to non-profit organizations in the Leeds and Grenville area. Over the years, our youth have had the opportunity to become involved in more than 2,600 projects and donated over 33,000 hours of their time! Come in to learn more about our exciting volunteer program.
The YVC program has been operating in Brockville since March of 1999. Ribfest is one of the many exciting activities, our youth enjoy participating in! Other projects include:
During the academic year, volunteer projects are scheduled after school hours—in the evenings and on weekends. In summer, activities are available throughout the day and week. All volunteer events are supervised. We are also able to provide transportation for volunteers in Brockville who may need a ride to project venues.

Volunteering is a great way to develop skills for your resume, network with professionals in the community and gain references for job applications. Let us help you build your network and confidence as you serve the community.
If your organization requires volunteers on an ongoing basis or for a special project we can provide them to you. Our volunteers always come prepared to work and are accompanied by the Youth Volunteer Crew Team Leader who supervises and assists them.
