Our Plan

The YouthServe Summer Institute group will meet 3 days during the weeks of July 13th-17th and 27th-31st. Service projects will be held over Zoom to ensure the safety of our volunteers, with the exception of an optional visit to the Muzzio Mosaic site in Watsonville to work on the community mosaic project.

Your Commitment

We would like students to participate in both weeks, but they are not required to. We do ask that volunteers attend all remote service projects for the week(s) they sign up for. We hope you will join us this summer to amplify your voice and make a rewarding impact in Watsonville and beyond.

Applications for Summer 2020 are due Friday, July 3rd
