Young People Who Care is organization I started in 2003 when I was in 8th grade. YPWC is a student based service organization that allows students to get involved in decision making in regards to the activities that we participate in. In essence students are the foundation of our organization and our adult sponsors are there for moral support and constant guidance. Over the years we have started several different initiatives within our community and state. Initiatives such as a weekly tutoring program that allows students of any age in our school district to recieve tuturing from their peers. It is a great program because the younger kids really look up to the tutors who are generally high school students. We also started a School and Community Beautification program that allowed our members the opportunity to meet weekly and discuss what they would like to see done to our campus, surrounding campuses, and our community furthermore allowing them to take part in beautifying our community. We also revamped our High School's recycling program; under our new system we would collect all recyclable items while selling the aluminium cans and plastic bottles to recycle banks and donated all of the money weekly to each of the four grades in our High School. On a montly basis we provide dinner for a nearby orphanage and engage with them in a month activity. Other traditions we have instilled in our community are annual Junior vs Senior Powder Puff Games, Little Elm High School Idol, Halloween Movie Night, Work with Habitat for Humanity and Salvation Army, YPWC Sponsored Circle of Excellence Award, and Student of The Month. We also started a Rowdy Crowd a subsidiary of YPWC that travels to all extra-curricular functions to support that club as well as to encite spirit.
