Meet our youth leaders.
Also, I learned that I have a chance to lead and steer younger minds away from negative influences. So, let us step into the shoes of role models and change our community.
I’ve been in the program since 6th grade, and now as a sophomore I feel really confident speaking in front of crowds and educating people about sex. I hope this campaign will help lower the pregnancy rate in our community because more teens will be educated on safe sex.
Teen pregnancy prevention is a big thing in America. For now we are helping the cause in Des Moines. This needs to be seen and taken seriously. Joining this program is my way of helping this cause.
This program is all about uniqueness, along with equality. They teach us to use our talents to help others. Some of us can help others up and this is what we are trying to do for you.
When I’m not doing Whyld Girls stuff, I’m doing music. It’s something like my 2nd love next to school and education. I sing in 2 choirs at school and 3 church choirs as well as play the piano. The Whyld Girls has taught me the essence of balancing everything that goes on in life so that I can have a successful Future.
I enjoy reading, going to the movies, and hanging with friends. Besides being in Whyld Girls, I am also involved in Upward Bound, Gear Up, D-PREP, and Academic Decathlon.
I hope that this website is very helpful and gives you lots of information. Thanks for visiting the website and seeing what the Whyld Girls and Backyard Boyz believe in.
We learned about keeping focus and its importance by having quiet time everyday and writing in our journals. Taking these breaks helped me to understand the material and get the lesson. In the Backyard Boys we also learned about planning by sitting down and writing down upcoming meetings and events. Even today I’m still not sure of what I want to be but by working hard and planning I could be anything I dream.
Hello everyone, my name is Rebecca. I’m 18 Years old attending East High School. I’m participating in this program because I strongly believe that we are the leaders of tomorrow. We are making the change that needs to be made. Many teens don’t get the right information that they need to get it.
A program like this is very helpful, and I get the right the information. Teens have questions and we have answers. Let us be heard. We are the future of tomorrow and lets start with a safe beginning (:
I am committed to the pregnancy prevention campaign because it’s vital. I’m getting informed about things that will help me in my future. A lot of people don’t take time to talk about pregnancy. It’s time to start.
It all took hard work and a lot of passion, but we all found a way to connect with one another, even though some of us had some had a hard time working together. We all knew what we were here for, and that was to show everyone what future really means through art.
Being a brother group to the Whyld girls we kind of have to mess around with them a little but showing others how hard we can work and accomplish our goals and ideas, to become achieved. Well that just shows that we are like a little family coming from all different schools, places, races, and backgrounds. It also shows that you can find the brightest ideas from the darkest places.
