We are a community youth group associated with the American Chinese Culture and Education Foundation (ACCEF), and are comprised of students from local middle schools and high schools. The Youth Care Club has been engaged in humanitarian activities in China since 2007. For example, after the 2008 Sichuan Earthquake, we raised money for the disaster victims and sponsored affected children so that they were able to continue their educations. A group of YCC members also traveled to Sichuan to help rebuild 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 the remote Yunnan Province, one of the poorest areas in China.
In addition to helping Chinese students, we actively contribute to our communities in the San Diego area. Our members participate in beach cleaning activities, work as volunteers at the House of China in Balboa Park, work with Feeding America and the Salvation Army in serving the less fortunate, and more! We also host community events like talent shows and picnics to help fund our activities.
