(antiMusic) While other stars start worthless activist groups and launch partisan non-partisan get out the vote groups there are some stars that actually do something that helps people and may in the long run help change things. AP has a story of one such star: Wyclef Jean has announced the creation of several youth-based programs funded by his Yele Haiti charity.

"If you want to change a country, unfortunately, you're not going to be able to help 8 million people at one time," the 35-year-old singer told reporters. "But if you can get one or two or three and start to make that change, that will make the difference."

Yele Haiti will provide computer labs, classrooms and counseling for jailed child gang members, help local women's groups sell food in the seaside slum of Cite Soleil, and establish a youth scholarship and soccer program, Jean said. - more on this story
