iCARE Youth Coalition
WE TAKE ACTION TO GET A POSITIVE REACTION.
The Kosciusko Cares Youth Services Bureau, iCARE Youth Coalition is comprised of a group of area high school students from Warsaw, Tippecanoe Valley, and Whitko High Schools. The group is working on a mission statement to come soon. The KCYSB iCARE Youth Coalition's goal is to empower youth in Kosciusko County, through creating opportunities for teens to develop leadership skills, collaboration, project management skills, and creative problem solving to support peers and the community in prevention of substance use.
The iCARE Youth Coalition is a countywide SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) Chapter. This opportunity will build leadership skills, confidence, and the ability to make a difference in your school and community. We are a group of Kosciusko County high school students who want to inspire others and make our communities great.
Open to Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors at Whitko, Triton, Wawasee, Lakeland Christian, Warsaw, and Tippecanoe Valley High Schools.

Through participating in special events with Kosciusko Cares Youth Services Bureau, the teens develop leadership and communication skills. The youth participated in the Kosciusko Chamber of Commerce GPS2 Success event to recruit members and volunteer at the Kosciusko Cares YSB April Fool's 5K event. More events will be planned throughout the year.
The youth work towards spreading awareness about social issues, bullying, and the prevention of substance use among teens, by manning booths at the Warsaw Downtown First Fridays and organizing events like the balloon launch last year at each high school.
