We Go Into Schools To Help Children

We Care About Kids in schoolsIn today's society, hundreds of thousands, if not millions of our children are deeply troubled. Societal ills such as racism, drugs and smoking plague our youths unlike ever before. There are few effective mechanisms to stop the viral like spread of these problems. Many children fall into a path of destruction for one simple reason: They feel as though no one truly cares about them. This is the heart of our organization: demonstrating through various film projects that people do care. We Care About Kids (WCAK) produces films that speak out against a wide array of issues and allow students to discuss those issues and solutions in meetings called "Junior Town Hall Meetings" conducted by WCAK staff and celebrity volunteers.

School presentations can be arranged in a variety of different ways. Some schools have elected to conduct breakout sessions in which a moderator will discuss the dialogue presented in the movies with the students. Panel members then rotate throughout small groups. This session takes about one hour. Then all of the students will rejoin the Town Hall and discuss their findings in a forum with the moderator. This session is limited to 30 minutes. At the end of the session, an announcement will be made opening up an essay and poster contest to the entire school. The themes can vary. Teachers from the school will be asked to help judge the essays. Prizes will be awarded in each category: essay and poster. Each winner will be eligible for the big prize between all schools. All the children are given handouts and are encouraged to write letters about what they learned and how the event has helped them understand the issues. Please visit the Films page to learn about the subject content on the issues to be discussed for each film.
