In this video (fast forward to 13:46 minutes), Bear Country News, the Norwalk High School student-run video news station "created for students by students to inform and entertain," profiles a Carver Youth Development Program (YDP) student-led initiative to help the Connecticut Humane Society in Westport.
YDP students are raising funds and awareness for the Connecticut Humane Society in Westport. The students visited the agency to learn more about the needs of the animals there and how to help them. YDP students are sharing images of the animals on social media and they are raising funds to donate to the agency by displaying donation canisters in the school cafeteria and by conducting bake sales. Ms. Dolan, the NHS Culinary Arts teacher, helps the students prepare the baked goods that go on sale each Wednesday. The students had raised more than $100 by the time of the video broadcast.
