Youth Who Care

ywc 2016Since 1997, this group of high school students has provided a shadow board to our Board giving them a meaningful experience in volunteering for our hospital. Youth Who Care Directors believe that there is a bright future for youth as contributors in society. Their vision which looks “towards tomorrow” means they are willing to take the challenge and responsibility of building a healthy and strong communities — wherever their lives take them in year to come. 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.
