Youth Volunteer Nomination

Arkansas Youth Volunteer Network

Youth across the state are volunteering through many different avenues - maybe through a school or after school program, their church or faith-based congregation, a youth advisory council, or extra-curricular clubs like 4-H, scouts, or Beta Club.

These groups and the youth involved are doing great things in their communities, but imagine if we could harness the power of these groups to make a collective volunteer impact throughout our entire state! For example, Arkansas has one of the highest rates of senior hunger and food insecurity in the country.  If youth volunteering with their school, faith congregation, after school program, or club all mobilized in every region of the state to make a difference in senior hunger on a particular day of service, we could begin to see real changes throughout our entire state.

The Arkansas Youth Volunteer Network was created to leverage the many diverse avenues for youth service, focusing on addressing critical needs in Arkansas through collective impact volunteering on special initiatives and days of service. It is also a space for those who lead and work with youth volunteers to share resources and best practices. Contact Ashley Moses to receive email updates with service project toolkits, volunteer related resources, and announcements of special initiatives and days of service.
