Are you a student who is passionate about the arts? Do you need volunteer hours? Are you interested in serving the community through the arts? Join our Frisco Arts Youth Council! Members of the FAYC are high school students who live in the DFW metroplex. FAYC members will be chosen by Frisco Arts via an application. The Council will support Frisco Arts by providing a volunteer base for community events and offering insight into the varied artistic interests of Frisco youth. Members of the Frisco Arts Youth Council will serve for one year, concurrent with the school year calendar.
Frisco Arts is proud to be a Certifying Organization (CO) for the Presidential Volunteer Service Award (PVSA). This prestigious award recognizes our nation’s most committed volunteers, who work tirelessly to make the world a better place through their selfless contributions. Our FAYC Vice President, Jiaxin (Jessie) Yu, has been able to receive the Gold Award, the highest honor, two years in a row through the FAYC, meaning she contributed over 250 hours of service in a single year! We are very proud of her and hope to encourage more people to do the same. In addition to hours spent volunteering for Frisco Arts and the FAYC, we also certify hours from other Certifying Organizations and arts-related activities in theater, dance, music, visual arts, culinary arts, literature, and more.
To get started, simply visit the PVSA website https://www.presidentialserviceawards.gov to set up your volunteer profile and get started. Our Record of Service (ROS) key code is SXO-8189 and is used to record your hours and submit them for approval by Frisco Arts. Our service year begins on July 1 and lasts through June 30 of the following year. There are many opportunities wonderful for volunteers of all ages to get involved, and we thank you in advance for giving your time and talent to Frisco Arts!
We look forward to another fantastic year with our FAYC!
