IMPACTDC is a coalition of youth leading our peers and serving our community by making impact in the lives of the hungry, hurting and homeless. We are a youth led and governed membership-based group of high school and college-aged students who convene monthly to provide service opportunities their peers can partake in to make impact in the community. High school students get credit toward their volunteer hours requirements for graduation.
IMPACTDC members learn and develop valuable leadership and organization skills by performing acts of service in their communities by serving meals, making beds at the shelter, cleaning up campgrounds, and distributing groceries to unhoused neighbors and people living in poverty. They also learn by serving as youth advisory council to the senior leadership of Central Union Mission, rallying their peers and community, planning projects, running meetings and making impact through leadership and service.
