Youth Philanthropy: 100 Youth Who Care

The Youth Advisory Committee of the Otsego County Community Foundation will be presenting 100 Youth Who Care on June 20th, noon, at the Headwaters Room inside Jay’s Sporting Goods. This is the first year for this event in our community, run by the youth, with the youth, for the youth. The notion that philanthropy is only for adults is outdated. “Youth should be involved with philanthropy because it offers them a chance to not only make themselves better people, but gives them the power to bring change to the community and inspire others,” noted Andrew Handley.

“The 100 Youth Who Care was started with the hopes that we could encourage 100 youth in our community to come together and help support each other and fuel more opportunities for everyone,” stated Sara Daugherty.

The Youth Advisory Committee wants the voice of the youth to be heard. How the youth view the community is different than the adults. “There is a divide between adults and youth; our voice isn’t always being heard. YAC and events like 100 Youth Who Care are a bridge that can give us a louder voice,” stated Elijah Yocum.

The concept is easy:
Are you willing to commit to one hour and $20.00?

Do you want to learn about – or let others know about – work being done in Otsego County to improve the lives of youth?

Do you want to be part of a caring and amazing group of youths who are making a positive impact in our community today, tomorrow, and forever?

Do you want 100% of your donation to go directly to local charities?

Are you 10-19 years old? Then…..
