Volunteer Youth Corps Inc., launched in 1996, is a voluntary, non-government and not-for–profit company made up of a group of dynamic young people who dedicate their time talents and energy towards the development of the health, economic and social sectors in Guyana. We believe in youth and volunteerism; volunteerism as a means of reaching and empowering the less fortunate and disadvantaged.
We seek to employ the most effective practices for improving the lives of young people strengthening families and supporting communities.
• Youth and Women Empowerment: an after-school programme focusing on peace and non-violent communication, and life skills which encompass leadership training, computer studies, sewing training and organised out-door sports among other recreational activities.
• Big Brothers Big Sisters of Guyana: Mentoring Programme designed to help disadvantaged and “at risk” children who are unable to perform to their fullest potential.
• Job Bank: this programme seeks to attract and place persons between the ages of 16-35, who may be skilled, semi-skilled or unskilled into productive jobs. VYC´s Job Bank offers effective services for employees and also for employers
• Business Development Centre: a new socio-economic development initiative which will assist Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) to access and benefit from non-financial business development services, and facilitate and promote business linkages and co-operation among MSMEs and large firms.
