Volunteers and Internships

Volunteering at the YRCC

The Yvonne Richardson Community Center (YRCC) offers many programs and opportunities for volunteers ages 14 and up to get involved in. Volunteers who work directly with youth are required to complete a background check. However, we also have one-time volunteer opportunities for special events and cleaning projects. If you have any questions about volunteering please call the center at 479-444-3461 or send us an email at yrcc@fayetteville-ar.gov

Internships at the YRCC

A large portion of what we do at the YRCC is facilitated with the help of volunteers and interns. Students in the fields of Social Work, Psychology, Non-Profit Management, Education, Recreation Sciences, Health and Wellness, Business, and many others have interned at the center.

As an intern with the YRCC you are able to help plan and implement programs. Interns at the YRCC are given a large amount of autonomy to seek out new partnerships in the community, plan fundraisers, create programs from the ground up, and build a strong and lasting network of connections in the greater NWA community.

Interns at the YRCC are not limited by the program they are assigned to nor do we exclude your potential participation if you cannot attend every single day of a program.
