Watsonville Jr. Volunteers is now the YouthSERVE Summer Institute.
The Summer Service Institute helps youth recognize their passion, share their talent and realize their power to transform our community through service.
Up to 30 Summer Service Internships are available for dedicated youth in grades 8-11.
Have fun while amplifying your voice and impact in Watsonville and beyond.
Participants are placed, according to their skill and interest and contribute valuable work in support of diverse causes including food distribution, child development, animal care, arts and creative empowerment, health, technology and environmental awareness.
