    Caught You Doing Good

    "Caught You Doing Good" is a New Earth campaign to reward New Earth students for positive behavior and help them to resist negative influences from their neighborhood. Students will be rewarded for their positive behavior with gifts and cash awards to provide meaningful incentives for positive behavior and desperately needed resources for poor families. We intend to change their mindsets from their concern of "being caught" by law enforcement to "being caught" and recognized for good work.
