In starting this process at a young age- empathy is gained and encouragement of others continues. Good Shepherds is also focusing on instilling community leadership among these very individuals so they learn that they are able to think outside of the box in problem solving and using creativity and collaboration as part of it all. The most current problems that the group is focused on is hunger, environment, self-esteem, bullying, and poverty.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organization focuses on helping the young leaders of our community fulfill their goals in providing support, educating, and increasing the volunteer base so that others can learn how to give back. To grow our volunteer base and create opportunities in order to assure families have the essentials to lead healthy lives.

The Youth Advisory Council along with the support and guidance from the Board of Advisors work on researching community problems and brainstorm on what would be considered to be best efforts to help alleviate pressures, issues , and road blocks to help make improvements. With the use of social media and their newsletter, the group shares the goals and asks for support in fulfilling the needs of particular project they are working on. The request of assistance is by participation, research, and fundraising.

In addition, leadership training for the Youth Advisory Council to improve their capabilities of reaching their goals.

Good Shepherds capabilities of meeting goals include a strong, passionate, and involved Board of Advisors to guide our Youth Advisory Council. The Youth Advisory Council is a group of independent thinking, passionate, empathetic, and brain storming individuals from ages 12-17. The group also has a growing volunteer base that include children and adults who believe in the power of change and provide amazing support.

Currently Good Shepherds Foundation has created a movement called We Are One Movement. Our Mission is To promote a world of kindness, love, and unity by reaching out and encouraging others to be kind to one another, helping people regain their power, and making a safe place for all to be heard. The movement has a petition for individuals to sign which encourages kindness to self and others.
The next steps for We Are One Movement is to create a Kindness Rally or Dance and continuing to share the message.

The group has started a monthly newsletter sharing information, advice, and events.

The group has also started creating podcasts to share the information of what the programs are within the organization and topic coverages of interest.

Good Shepherds Foundation has also created a boutique of items that are handmade by Youth Advisory Council members as well as volunteers. Items include Calming Jars, Positive message and inspirational stones, jewelry inspiring kindness.
