Currently, SPYC meets one Sunday out of every month at 5 pm in the FCSS Youth Council Room.

WHY VOLUNTEER?

Volunteering is a great way to form relationships, practice self-expression, and assist with change in your community. If you feel that there is nothing to do in our community - why not join SPYC? You can bring your ideas and make something happen in your community!

Studies have shown that volunteering not only benefits the community, but the benefits appear to have an even greater impact on the volunteer. Volunteering can help reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated and provide a sense of purpose. 

HOW DO I BECOME A SPYC MEMBER?

It's Easy! 
  1. Complete the SPYC Volunteer Form.
