Youth Advisory Committee (YAC)
YAC is a youth advisory committee to its parent group, the Lapeer County Community Foundation. The seed monies for the Lapeer County Youth Initiative Fund were made possible by a challenge grant from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation. Income from the Lapeer County Youth Initiative Fund is used to give grants for youth related needs throughout Lapeer County.
Our YAC was started in 1996 and the membership is comprised of 7th-12th grade students living in Lapeer County. YAC members volunteer their time to assess community needs, study issues important to youth, report their findings to community leaders and evaluate grant proposals requesting funds for youth-oriented programs. The group is also active in the community, completing four or five community service projects annually.
If you want to have fun, learn about philanthropy and leadership, work as part of a diverse group and meet new friends from other Lapeer County Schools, YAC may be for you! Contact Jennifer Phillips, YAC Advisor at (810) 664-0691 for information about joining YAC.
