Youth Action Committee

You don't want to wait until after high school to make a difference. 

We respect that. 

Our Youth Action Committee (YAC) brings together mid-Michigan teens to lead and serve their community. YAC members participate in service projects and award thousands of dollars in grants to local youth-serving organizations. This year, the YAC granted more than $40,000 to charities serving youth in Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham counties. There are YAC branches in St. Johns, Charlotte and the Greater Lansing area.

Support the Youth Fund! Your donations will help the Youth Action Committee to make more grants in their local community! During your donation process, you will be asked if your gift is in honor or memory of someone.  Please select IN HONOR OF and write in the name of the branch you want to support: 

  • YAC St. Johns
  • YAC Charlotte 
  • YAC Lansing
