Serving on the YCT is an amazing service opportunity for youth. With the average individual serving 250+ hours, it comes with a lot of hard work. However, that hard work is paid of with fantastic rewards: meeting new people, making life long friends, and leadership experiences.
Here is what some of the 2017 YCT say about there time serving.
