PURE Youth, a leadership program, specifically aims to facilitate discussion and awareness of the impact that education has on society through numerous projects and fundraising. PURE Youth also supports projects from all program areas and causes PURE champions which gives the ambassadors an opportunity to understand the depth and breadth of the issue, solution and impact on the lives they are helping change.

The Edison Chapter’s journey began in September 2019. After watching PURE in action at several events, we decided to undertake this amazing opportunity to provide an education to underprivileged children. Since then, our group has grown both in size and strength, and we have become a close-knit group of people dedicated to achieving our goals together. All of our members are passionate and have given countless hours for the greater good. Our team has learned so much through all the different activities we have done so far, such as bake sales, fundraisers, and especially the Prerana event. Many of our members love to dance; with Prerana, they get to act and perform for a great cause! In addition, we are blessed to have such earnest, hardworking, and diligent mentors. They are always there for us and guide us to do our best. Without them, there would not be an Edison Chapter! PURE taught us a lot about the value of education and how it can change a person’s life. Our members are eager to continue supporting this important cause and hope to make a great impact in the future!

As a director of PURE, I feel that this organization has made a huge impact on me in regards to how I live my everyday life. It made me realize how lucky I am to be able to go to school every day and even learn at home with technology. We may not think too deeply about getting to school in a car, having hot lunches prepared every day or all the accessible facilities that make learning fast and easy, but it’s definitely important to have gratitude for these privileges. Throughout my time with PURE, I have learned a lot about what it means to give back, and that even thousands of miles away it is possible to make a difference in people’s lives. Overall, I am thankful for the opportunity to do good and hope for an amazing experience with PURE in the future! ~ Sarika Akula
