Florida YMCA Youth In Government


Y-Corps is a service-learning program for students who want to make a difference in their communities across Florida. Composed 25-30 rising freshmen and sophomores delegates and 6-8 rising and graduating senior team leaders, the Y-Corps team travels with graduate advisors volunteers across Florida the first week of August. 

Participants in the program form a cohort of passionate young people from across the state who have been exposed to the wide range of cultures, strengths, and needs that make up our state and country. Participants are hosted at different YMCAs across the state and volunteer at different locations, providing more than 1,600 hours of service during the week.

Through a combination of hard work, cultural experiences, travel, self-discovery, and reflection, Y-Corps extends the Y’s mission into communities throughout our state and beyond.
