Hamilton Community Foundation’s Youth Advisory Council is a group of youth from all over Hamilton between the ages of 13 and 25. YAC works with Hamilton Community Foundation to make grants that benefit other youth in the city. In the past ten years, YAC has supported nearly 200 projects and committed close to $200 000 dollars to fund youth-led environmental and community projects. With a focus on philanthropy and community engagement, this group is a great opportunity to make a difference in Hamilton, to grow leadership skills, and to gain self-confidence. Being involved with YAC offers opportunities to learn about positive changes that are happening both locally and globally. If you are interested in being a YAC member or would like more information, like our Facebook page, follow us on Twitter, or email Melissa, our Adult Advisor.
