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.

Our PURE Detroit chapter started out as a group of five friends that wanted to make a difference in the world. We found out about PURE and decided to make our very own chapter in Detroit! One of our directors, Trishika Kalapruam, was the one that created our chapter. Trishika’s mom, Padma Kalapuram, talked to Shyla Thalluri, the founder of PURE, about PURE. This sparked us to start our very own chapter in September of 2019. From there, we expanded to seven members. Our goal was to help Mandat Parishat Upper Primary School in India and our local community in Detroit. In less than three weeks, we managed to successfully complete two events and get recognized by one of the Michigan state representatives, Padma Kuppa. Our PURE group has a passion to not only help ourselves but others too. We want to show that even though we are a group of high schoolers, we can make an impact that affects the entire world.

Testimonials

When I first joined PURE, I was excited to be a part of this new team, but I didn’t know what I was really going to do. As I learned more about the purpose of this organization, and why it was important, I developed many important skills that I would carry on throughout my life. Fundraising taught me confidence, and brainstorming ideas taught me the value of teamwork. Being a part of PURE made me realize how privileged I am, and how the simple things that I do can make a great impact on a kid’s life. ~ Sahithi

Joining PURE has changed the way I view life. Hearing about underprivileged kids did not really affect me that much in the past but personally helping and working for these kids made me realize how privileged I am. PURE also helped me develop leadership skills along with better communication skills by not being shy with strangers through all the fundraisers I’ve done. This organization is a wonderful opportunity for me to create relationships throughout the world. Even though I may never meet these kids I am helping, all that matters is that I’ve been able to bring a smile on these children’s faces. ~ Trishika

As a youth member of PURE, I feel happy to be able to make a person’s life better. PURE has helped me grow in many different ways. I developed my communication and leadership skills while raising money for amazing causes. I love being a part of a great organization like this since it helps me think in a way that not only affects me but also affects the entire world. Joining PURE is one the best decisions I made. I get to have fun with my friends while helping out in the community. ~ Sohan

When I first heard of PURE and what they were doing, I immediately wanted to join. I loved how PURE wanted to help underprivileged children and their underdeveloped schools. After I joined the team, I learned more about the organization and how they raised money to help their cause. I also improved core skills through the PURE fundraisers we set up. It helped boost my confidence and helped improve my public speaking skills. Being in PURE helped me understand how little fundraisers can help people build and supply products to underdeveloped areas around the world. ~ Spandana

Being part of PURE has helped me grow as a person in a way that I could never have imagined. Through the many fundraisers and meetings we’ve had, it has helped me build my leadership, self-confidence, communication, etc. Being part PURE helped me realize the problems going around in my community and around the world. PURE just didn’t help me realize the problems, it has helped me to think outside the box and figure out how to help with these issues. ~ Harshi

I am always active on Facebook and I saw Shylagaru posts about PURE and its services serving unfortunate kids through some common friends. The way Shylagaru handled, inspired me to know more about PURE; it’s services for orphan kids really interested me and I started following her posts regarding the different services PURE was doing with selflessness. I did a lot of donations to different organizations but never heard how the money was spent later. Shylagaru was posting about how they spent and on what purpose they spent the money donated to PURE . That was the reason for me to join PURE by messaging Shyla garu on how I can join my daughter Trishika in PURE YOUTH. I feel blessed that I am a mentor could be a little bit of help in serving the needy on behalf of PURE YOUTH Detroit. ~ Padma Kalapuram
