@youth_earth_club • Foster & Banks Walk in Faith Foundation works to restore the village mentality in inner city communities by providing quality, hands on supports, services and resources. We believe that everyone has their own gifts, talents, stories, testimonies, and their own Walk in Faith, and by sharing our journeys with others, we bring true wealth to ourselves. In 2012, then 7 year old Youth Member Kirsten Chavis, created a GO GREEN Environmental Initiative to encourage environmental awareness, accountability, and responsibility in the community. From this initiative, the GO GREEN Youth Earth Club was formed. Led by Kirsten, the club host annual Earth Day Community Events, cleanups, environmental workshops, and engages in service projects each year that benefit the planet and their communities.
