During the term of service for UServeUtah’s 2020 Youth Council, Youth Council members planned and carried out service projects across the state. Many projects were adapted to address new pressing needs due to COVID-19.

We would like to thank the 2020 UServeUtah Youth Council for their service, leadership, and impacts made during this unprecedented year. These young leaders completed projects with a total of over 1,300 volunteer hours.
