YPWC is entirely run and operated by university-aged young people, called Youth Action Advocates. We are not an organization under the umbrella of a larger NGO, business, or network. We operate entirely thanks to a volunteer staff of young people. The Youth Action Ambassadors act as the core leadership of Young People We Care (YPWC) –we do everything from respond to emails from youth involved to working with youth on the facets of the UN Millennium Development Goals and other global issues that affect youth. In general, we educate young people, inspire them and work with middle or high school age youth, fundraise to keep our organization afloat, teach youth around the world about the global issues including the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), help design programs that empower youth to construct and implement service projects, and work on general infrastructure maintenance within the organization. It’s a team effort. On a weekly/monthly basis, we are tangibly making a difference in the lives of young people –that’s not a cliché, it’s a fact. Youth Action Ambassadors (YAAs) are essentially the volunteer staff of Young People We Care (YPWC). YPWC YAAs are not paid for their work –these are volunteer positions. By becoming an YPWC YAAs, you join a team of youth working hard to make a positive difference in the world. We are trying to do something that has never been done before!
