What is Project Youth?


Volunteers are needed to assist fifth and sixth grade students from Title 1 schools by giving them a glimpse of campus life in hopes of instilling a desire for higher education. One day a year, volunteers assist these students with campus tour events. This school year we will be serving on March 27th, 2020.

 

Volunteer Commitment: Volunteers are needed for about four hours on the day of the event. There are also training meetings that happen before the event, but you will get that info when you sign up!

Experiences

Serving with Project Youth was such a fun way to become more involved with the community. Seeing the children we served with so excited to learn about college gave me deeper sense of gratitude for all the blessings I experience as a BYU student. I hope I can continue passing it on!
