Youth Services Make a difference in the lives of community youth

What is Youth Services?

  • To create a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world with young people, their schools, and their communities through service-learning. (NYLC)
  • Youth service refers to non-military, intensive engagement of young people in organized activity that contributes to the local, national, or world community.
  • The importance of Youth services is to get kids involved, develop programs that promote positive health and get kids active, playing, and learning.
  • The youth are our future!


  • Im personally really interested in Youth Services because I feel deeply connected to our youth and really want to help make a difference in their lives. I want to be a mentor/guide that helps facilitate learning through activities, games, nature, and play. I want children to get a hands on learning experience and use nature as an outlet for knowledge. Together we can facilitate programs that will help with a Childs development and communication and be able to gain experience through play.

What I want to learn?

I want to learn more about different organization that I can volunteer at and get more involved in this semester. I want to know more about the career paths in youth services. Now that I'm a holistic health minor, Id like to know more about what I can do with both majors together. Am I able to teach kids in a more holistic approach? Talking more about nutrition and clean eating? I want to know how they can interrelate so I can be more knowledgeable and be able to continue this journey to help and guide kids.

I plan on making a difference in kids lives, by learning everything I can about youth services, by talking to different teachers, organizations, and mentors to see how I can get more involved, now. I will have a positive impact on kids because i will be able to help support their growth and help them understand the importance of having healthy living habits. I will always strive to be a positive role model who acts with good behavior and a kind heart. I will continue to help facilitate growth and help form the kids of our future!
