Youth Rock provides an opportunity for youth between Grades 7-12 to be a part of one or both of the following;
IVC recruits youth to participate in the planning process of the annual “Youth Rock’ series of events that take place during the entire month of May in recognition of National Youth Week. These events are organized by youth for youth.
It’s a great opportunity to acquire both new skill sets or enhance the ones you currently have such as; networking socially and professionally, organizational, working with a budget, people & time management, supervisor roles, marketing, advertising, creativity and leadership with a natural fit for increasing ones confidence and self-esteem.
Being on the committee also brings great opportunities to meet likeminded youth outside of your regular circle of friends especially if you’re trying to expand your network of friends OR it can also be a great way to spend time together with a few of your closest friends who also wish to be a part of the committee. Whatever your reasons, we can assure you that you won’t be disappointed.
In addition to all of those great reasons for becoming a committee member, this is also one of the easiest ways to accumulate the “mandatory” volunteer hours needed for school, resume building and gain personal references and recommendation letters that will be useful in the coming years.
We welcome your involvement at any time throughout the year and encourage you to give it a try. You just might surprise yourself with what you’re able to accomplish. The commitment level starts with one meeting per month and then increases as you get closer to the event date that you are involved with.
We provide a light snack and door prizes at every meeting, so come on, what are you waiting for?
