Payne County Youth Services Volunteer Reward Program

Payne County Youth Services (PCYS) has just begun a new Volunteer Rewards Program, which will allow an “official” PCYS volunteer (official meaning they have completed their required paperwork and allowed a background check) to track their monthly PCYS hours.

During the first week following each quarter, PCYS will tally the hours and name a Volunteer of the Quarter.  To honor them, PCYS will reward that person with a $10 gift card to a local eating establishment, submit a news article and picture to the NewsPress and add that to their website, facebook and quarterly newsletter.

Some of the jobs they have available now are:

  • Tutoring
  • Painting
  • Cleaning
  • Landscaping
  • Construction
  • Safe Place® Assistance
  • Youth Outings/Activities
  • Craft Instruction
  • Art Instruction
  • Music Lessons
  • Grant Writing

PCYS also has internships available for OSU students and classes. However, these are not a part of the rewards program.

If you’re interested in registering to volunteer, contact Linda at (405) 377-3380 or lindap@pcys.org
