Confucius said, “He who wishes to secure the good of others has already secured his own.” This wise old saying rings quite true for Brandon Yaraghi, Jack Forlines and Tyler Tam, three charming young men who are well on their way to securing great futures. Friends, outstanding Friends Academy students and star athletes, these entrepreneurially minded comrades rallied together to help a cause true to their heart, the children of Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club.
It all started with WATCH - We Are The Community Helpers committee – a Friends Academy program, encouraging and organizing student involvement in various community service projects. Through the program, Brandon, Jack and Tyler and were introduced to Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club, assisting members with homework help during the club’s Power Hour. After getting to know the kids on a personal level and developing lasting bonds, the three friends felt compelled to do more than just volunteer their time.
