Global Classroom Initiative 

The Global Classroom Initiative is a YPC progam focused on building schools in underdeveloped areas. Most recently YPC raised over $40,000 to build a school in Kenya in an effort to improve learning conditions and provide a better overall schooling experience for students living in the Maasai Mara. YPC plans to continue this initiative annually.

Painting With a Purpose
