We, at Youth Care Club (YCC), are a community youth group associated with American Chinese Culture and Education Foundation (ACCEF), are comprised of students from local middle schools and high schools. Youth Care Club engages in humanitarian activities in China ever since 2007. For example, after the 2008 Sichuan Earthquake, we raised money for the disaster victims and sponsored affected children so they may continue their educations. A group of us traveled to Sichuan helped rebuilding damaged schools. Although the area has largely recovered from the earthquake, we continue to fund the educations of impoverished children in China to help them achieve their dreams. We are currently sponsoring four female high school students from remote Yunnan Province, one of the poorest areas in China.
In addition to our work helping Chinese students, we actively contribute to our communities in San Diego area. We participate in beach cleaning, volunteer at the House of China in Balboa Park, work with Feeding America, serve the less fortunate with the Salvation Army, perform at various senior centers, and many more! We also host community events like talent shows and picnics to help fund our activities.
