New Vision Youth Community Center is recruiting new volunteers for Eco
New Vision Youth Community Center(NVYCC) is offering a teenage
volunteer program, Eco Friends, in order to prevent the problems of the young people.
NCYCC had a presentation about
Eco Friends on May 31st at the Cherry Hill Public Library. Eco Friends is made
in order to help teenagers to volunteer independently without asking their
parents to give them a ride or finding a volunteering program to join.
In Eco Friends, the volunteers are split into small groups and do
activities such as cleaning the park or other public places. Parents and the
volunteers who attended the presentation filled out the application form for
the Eco Friends.
The student leader Whee sung Lee (Camden Catholic 11th) has come up
with the idea and the activities of Eco Friends. She encouraged other students
to participate in the program and helped other students by peer counselling. If a volunteer has more than 100 hours of volunteering, he is eligible
for receiving the presidential service awards.
NVYCC is also planning for internships and one day camps learning
about teenage issues and counselling those who are struggling with the issues.
