Youth Advisory Committee

The Youth Advisory Committee is a youth-empowered committee working together to make an impact on communities through volunteering, service, and grantmaking.

Eligible students must be in 8th, 9th, 10th, or 11th grade during the 2022 – 2023 school year.
YAC is part of the M&M Area Community Foundation.

We are seeking students with leadership potential!
