Community Health, Youth Voices
Volunteers as young as eight years-old came out for a resource fair planned for those residents of Merced who might have a hard time getting information on health care and other services. The Guadalupano Youth Society is composed of elementary and middle school-aged kids who help organize fundraisers and host community events like the resource fair, aided by their adult mentors. “We are holding this fair annually to bring more resources into the area. It often goes underserved and that is unacceptable.” Read about the fair on We’Ced.
