The Youth Action Commission is a program that provides teens in grades 6th-12th with activities and learning experiences that teach leadership, social skills, problem solving, and team building skills; while promoting community and cultural awareness. We value and promote youth ideas, input, involvement, diversity, communication, and success. This is a youth led program, which pushes youth to make a difference on issues in their community.

YAC members will be responsible for planning four community/teen events each year. These can include dances, community yard sales, clean up days etc. These events are a good opportunity to raise money for the club. The decision is all YACs!
