Youth Community Involvement Club – Connecting FHS with the Franklin Community

Conor Lemanowicz writes:

As citizens of Franklin it is our duty to give back to the community that has given us so much throughout our lives. Giving back is the mission that the Youth Community Involvement Club was founded upon. Founded this year by a group of students led by Dan Robert, the YCIC’s goal is to create an organization that will have a profound effect on Franklin for years to come.

If you have never heard of the YCIC, you are not alone. It is a relatively new organization with large goals. The YCIC is an eight member board that acts as a catalyst to facilitate outreach between the students at Franklin High and the many people in our community in need of assistance. The YCIC works directly with the Franklin Food Pantry to help support the families of those in need. The Franklin Food Pantry is already a very established organization in town. With the help of the YCIC, the food pantry can reach more people, more efficiently, and with more consistency. 

YCIC meets every Thursday in Mr. Penza’s room. Meetings are open to the public to come in and provide ideas. The more awareness we can spread, the greater the effect we can have. The YCIC also helps to organize and to spark interest for community events. The first of these events is the Elks Care Elks Share 5K Road Race and Walk. The event, which will take place on May 10th not only helps to benefit the Franklin Food Pantry but it also helps the Wounded Warrior Project. The YCIC hopes to lay a foundation to make the organization an integral part of student life at Franklin High. With your help, the YCIC can be extremely beneficial for generations to come. 

If you are interested in helping out with the YCIC in any way or if you would like to participate in the 5K please contact ycic.fhs@gmail.com or contact any of the members of the board.

You can also follow the YCIC on twitter @FHSYCIC
