TC Service

YWTF-DC has always participated in service activities in the DC Metro Community. This year we wanted to take our passion for helping others a step further by creating the Take Charge of Your Service program (TCYS).  

As members of YWTF-DC the power is in your hands! Do you have an idea for a volunteer event or activity? Are you currently involved with a volunteer program you would like to share with other YWTF-DC members? Let us know! Take Charge of Your Service means you help decide which service activities YWTF-DC members participates in. Send us your ideas and we'll plan volunteer activities! Email us at
