The City of Charleston is teaming up with Youth Volunteer Corps to offer a Summer of Service.

Events will run for four weeks between June, July, and August.

The program includes leadership and event days to help coach children in our area to be community leaders.
  • Leadership days | 7th and 8th graders
  • Event days | All Youth Volunteer Corps members
Let’s talk logistics. Most of the events are at CE Williams North Campus, 1776 William Kennerty Dr. However, some events will be off-site for the volunteer opportunity. It is suggested to pack a lunch and refillable water bottle for the day. A light snack will be provided at events.

If you know of youth looking to participate, they should fill out a parent wavier with their family.

From the editor
Alright y’all, I hope I was not the only person who noticed this.

When I was at the beach this past weekend with my friends, we discovered that the sand was covered in way more shells than normal. Our hypothesis was the storms from last week stirred everything up and led to them being pushed onto shore. Does anybody know the answer or have another hypothesis? Let me know.
