Building Youth Around the World was founded by Braedon McCracken in 2009. When the foundation was first established, Braedon was only 13 years old and, at that time, he had a keen desire to make a true difference in the lives of as many children around the world as he could. His first Humanitarian trip in 2009 was for his Eagle Scout project and it took place in Iloilo, Philippines where he personally delivered school and nutritional supplies to hundreds of children and their families. Since that time, he and other youth (including his younger Sisters, MaKel and Kaetlyn) have completed awe-inspiring humanitarian trips to many places to include Vailele, Samoa, parts of the U.S., Oulessebougou, Mali, Africa and many other needed areas in the world. The desire of all the young people involved in this foundation to truly make a difference is a lesson that many adults would be blessed to learn. We are grateful for their high standards and desire to do good in a world that can be difficult, at best, for so many children.
