Youth Who Care

Since 1997,¬† groups of high school students have provided a shadow board to our Board of Directors – giving them a meaningful experience in volunteering for their hospital. Youth Who Care Directors believe that there is a bright future for youth as contributors in society. Their vision looks “towards tomorrow” means they are willing to take the challenge and responsibility of building healthy and strong communities wherever their lives take them. The YWC offers unique skill-building opportunities for young people, instilling a life-long commitment to community service in a much wider capacity than just with our organization.

The Youth Directors are guided by five goals on which they focus; Health Promotion, Skill Development, Community Service, Voice of Youth, Fundraising. If you would like more information on Youth Who Care, please contact Heather Matheson, Foundation Managing Director.
