YAC Hosts MLK Celebration at Conway

YouthCARE's Youth Advisory Council and the Sanneh Foundation hosted a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebration at the Conway Community Center on Monday, Jan. 16. Neighborhood youth (and adults) played carnival-style games to earn tickets to win prizes, added to the "I Have A Dream" art collage, enjoyed lunch, and more. A video about the life of Dr. King was shared to reflect on his mission and purpose of the day. The event concluded with a bucket drumming presentation. 

Since 1974, our commitment has been to:

  • Offer educational experiences that foster cultural awareness, understanding and appreciation.
  • Employ youth in meaningful positions that also offer further education and career exploration.
  • Provide experiences and mentoring to develop youth leadership abilities.


YouthCARE's Volunteer Program provides a wide variety of opportunities for adults to get involved.

  • Program Volunteers work directly with young people in one of YouthCARE's three programs: Camp Sunrise, YouthLEAD, or the Young Women's Mentoring Program
  • Policy Volunteers serve on YouthCARE's Board of Directors or on a Policy Committee.
  • Special Event Volunteers provide support to YouthCARE by assisting with special events such as fundraisers, Camp Sunrise Workdays, or by sharing a special skill or expertise such as carpentry or graphics arts.
