November Volunteer of the Month   

Devin Connon

 


         Devin C. (17) of parents John and Chantal is the November Volunteer of the Month for the Boys & Girls Club of Alpena-Youth Volunteer Corps.

         Devin became a Youth Volunteer Corps member at the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year program and has been a standout in the Youth Volunteer Corps program ever since.  He has currently performed almost 350 hours of dedicated service to the YVC of Alpena program. Devin brings a great attitude and a team oriented philosophy to the YVC and always does whatever it takes to complete a project.  He is an integral piece of the YVC program and someone that the community, school, YVC and BGCA can count on.

         Devin decided to join the YVC because he wanted to help out the community and meet new people that shared his views on giving back and making a positive difference in the community.  He also joined because he wanted to develop new leadership skills Devin is a well-rounded youth volunteer that has earned the admiration and reverence from the YVC and the community through his devotion to others and all the volunteer projects he endeavors.

         One of Devinís favorite service projects is being part of the pack crew that visits the NEMCSA warehouse and filling food boxes that will be distributed to community members. He enjoys this project because is shows how teens can come together, get organized and help out. Devin also enjoys helping with the Recycling Green Team, visiting the Huron Humane Society and undergoing conservation projects.

         Devin says the best part of being in the Youth Volunteer Corps is that you get to help the community and its citizens through meaningful projects knowing that you are making a positive difference.  This is the attitude that the YVC tries to instill in all the volunteers.

         Devin would encourage all youth to join the YVC.  He would tell potential new members that everyone should join the YVC to help become a leader in their community and to make new friends who have the share similar values. There are a lot of different projects offered and there is something for everyone, so why not get involved.  Nothing can compare to the great feeling you get from helping others and having a great time while doing it. The YVC is something fun to do and it gives you a new perspective on the community.

         Actively and eagerly participating in YVC projects, maintaining a positive attitude, and selflessly providing service to the community are all part of the criteria for being named Volunteer of the Month.  The YVC staff feels Devin excels in all of these areas.

         The Boys & Girls Club of Alpena- Youth Volunteer Corps is a group of 11-18 year olds who participate in various meaningful service projects year round.  For more information or to join the YVC contact the Alpena High School YVC office at 358-5362 or the Boys and Girls Club at 356-0214 and ask for Bradley Somers.  Parents with children 11-18 years old are encouraged to get their kids involved in meaningful community projects.  High School credit recovery is also available. All youth 11-18 are invited.
