50 Acts of Kindness

"Find out what we're made of when we are called to help our friends in need." - Bruno Mars

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of YCP, our students, faculty, and staff will participate in 50 Acts of Kindness.

The 50 Acts of Kindness will afford all Spartans the opportunity to become engaged members of their community and have a lasting, positive impact.  Some are small.  Some are big.  All will make a difference.

Throughout the 50th celebration, several events will take place on and off campus. Follow this page to witness a snapshot of how members of our campus community will give back in a variety of activities to promote kindness and love for all humanity. Some are big. Some are small. All make a difference.

See how we pay it forward through May 18!
