This youth organization is currently made up of about forty-five middle and high school students who volunteer their time for fund raising and carrying out projects aimed at bettering the community. Under Keith's guidance, the group has carried out such projects as: 125 miles of diapers collected, 14 wishes for Make-A-Wish, and 250,000 hours of community service. Over 650 kids have gone through the program with nine of them earning their Ph.D.'s
