Invest in the power of a shared purpose
YOL’s learning experiences typically include direct-service activities rooted in YOL’s Mindful Service curriculum. Participants are energized by awareness of an authentic shared purpose, continuously driven by an ethos of joy and renewed commitment.
YOL’s approach to service puts mindful awareness at the center.
Self-Awareness and Education
Looking within is the start of the kind of meaningful service work that can challenge rather than reinforce assumptions: “Why do I want to volunteer?” or “Who do I think I’m helping, and how do we differ?”
Direct Service Projects
Empowered with our collective skills and knowledge, we engage in on-site service projects geared towards meeting the immediate needs and long-term goals of our partner organizations.
Sharing our insights from the service experience, we consider and discuss themes like: “How can we continue to support the needs of this community we’ve connected to in a meaningful way?”
Enterprise-wide, peer-to-peer service program that promotes acts of service, kindness and compassion between employees. Proprietary digital platform connects employees offering and needing help with tasks, mentorship, and resources.
Select YOL Service Partners

FEATURED SERVICE PARTNER
Forget Me Not Farm
Since 1992, Forget Me Not Farm has helped thousands of at-risk children and youth break the cycle of abuse. The farm offers animal-assisted and horticultural therapeutic activities that provide a haven for children, plants and animals to bond, learn and heal with one another. YOL volunteers are laying the groundwork for Forget Me Not Farm’s first Farm Stand: a project providing employment training and opportunities to at-risk foster youth from harvest to sales.
