UKANDU is proud and excited to announce our newest program, UKANDU Corps! This newest program was conceived by our Executive Director and inspired by his own experience in volunteering at UKANDU. It is in our DNA – heck, it’s in our name! – to remind people that “You Can Do!” a lot in life, no matter your challenges.
UKANDU Corps, UC, aims to draw on the powerful experience and self-confidence that comes from serving others. UC will bring together impassioned young people, aged 12-16, cultivating connection and understanding between peers with diverse backgrounds and unique lived experiences.
These emerging leaders will collaborate to identify a need in their community and will work together, with the help of professionals and volunteers, to better the community they share. Initiatives will be chosen and led by UKANDU Corps participants and may include (but are not limited to!) hands-on service projects, awareness campaigns, or fundraisings for a specific cause or group.
We are excited to bring together passionate young people in our community to learn and grow through service. If you know a 12-16-year-old with a heart for service, we invite them to apply for the inaugural year of UKANDU Corps!
