Y-Corps is a service-learning program for students who want to make a difference in their communities, state, and country. The program incorporates the 4 types of service we emphasize at the Y:

  • Perform at least 20 hours of direct and indirect service in their local communities
  • Practice philanthropy by fundraising for our Scholarship Fund
  • Engage in advocacy on behalf of their Y-Corps teams and the YMCA Movement

The program culminates with a week-long service trip. Participants in the program form a cohort of passionate young people from across their state or region who have been exposed to the wide range of cultures, strengths, and needs that make up our state and country.

Through a combination of hard work, cultural experiences, travel, self-discovery, and reflection, Y-Corps extends the Y’s mission into communities throughout our state and beyond.
