This year, YBN welcomed LaRhonda and Jessica, two AmeriCorps VISTA members who are working to design and implement ServiceWorks’ Service Scholar curriculum at YBN and its partner schools.

As Service Scholars, students will have the opportunity to further strengthen their leadership and project management skills, and be challenged to apply them in ways that address community needs through service. Powered by AmeriCorps, the Citi Foundation and Points of Light, ServiceWorks is a national program that offers a service-based approach to helping young adults build 21st century professional and leadership skills in preparation for college and careers.
