Read and listen to a story about Ethan Woodfill as part of a series honoring the individuals who make a difference in people’s lives: 90.5 WESA Celebrates People Making a Difference.

Fourteen-year-old Ethan Woodfill recruited friends and classmates to form the Do-Something Club to help better his community.

If it’s a Wednesday afternoon around 4:30 p.m., while most kids may be playing video games or at after-school activities, you may find Ethan holding his club meetings with fellow eighth graders at The Fire Escape Coffee Shop in Ben Avon, strategizing what community project to do next.

Ethan is the president of the Pittsburgh chapter of the Do-Something Club — a club he started a year ago, when he read about the national club that involves kids making their community a better place.
