The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The YAC provides an opportunity for central Ohio area youth ages 13-18 to learn about philanthropy and to participate in all aspects of grantmaking. While accumulating community service hours that many high schools require for graduation, YAC Members learn to evaluate projects that are designed to improve youth wellness through health advocacy, education and prevention.
The YAC meets the third Tuesday of every month from 5:30pm to 7:00pm. An approved membership application and orientation is required before prospects may attend meetings.
Many programs to improve the health and wellness of youth are created by organizations without the needed input of the very individuals these programs are designed to help, that is what makes the YAC so special!
