Aspiring philanthropists and community advocates, the MUST! Charities Youth Board not only researched organizations that are providing services to those in need; but also, sought out volunteer opportunities to see for themselves what the front line is like at area organizations. 

14 area high school students, who serve on the Youth Board, volunteered over 150 hours at SLO Food Bank. Camino Scholars by People's Self-Help Housing, and Boys and Girls Club. 

"Teens are so easily discounted but man, they are a powerful force! They have huge hearts and genuinely want to help people but maybe don't know how," says Kacie Pechota, Youth Board Coordinator. "It's hard to see the need or make an impact when you're so far removed from the issues, but once you know better, you do better."

Because of YOU, Must! Charities launched a $546,000 project with Transitions-Mental Health Association to create a state-of-the-art crisis call center that will become a model for other California counties and increases the number of people served.
