Trailblazing Volunteer Training

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Youth2 - Youth Helping Youth - will hold the 3.5 hour Trailblazing Volunteer Training, a program designed and implemented by youth on Saturday, December 15 2018 from 9:30 a.m. through 1 p.m. at the Spring Street Gallery, 110 Spring Street, Saratoga Springs. This is a free training program for students ages 11-22. This training will help you to think about something that you want to do to improve your local community or the world and how to realize your vision.   The course will highlight the value of volunteering and why people take part in social action.  Your creativity will be stirred to think of projects that help to solve social problems.  You will explore ways to make volunteer work meaningful to you and match your interests. The training will provide a forum of community service ideas and ways to make this world a better place; most schools have offered four community service credits for 3.5 training hours. Room capacity is limited, and registration is required.

Youth2’s mission is to help youth become involved in community service, learn about philanthropic skills which are skills to help others in need and to create and to develop community service projects that help other youth in their local or global communities.  While we assist others to join in volunteer opportunities that already exist in our community, we uniquely encourage youth to think about things that they care about and to create a service project of their own design.
