YAC is our "School of Philanthropy." Take a moment and look through these pictures from recent YAC events. It's easy to see how our YAC student leaders are making a difference.

Annual Fundraiser | April 27, 2024

YAC students organized a fun and family-friendly cosmic bowling event to benefit the YAC Endowment Fund. Each year, as part of the grantmaking process, YAC students use the proceeds from their Fund to issue grants in support of local nonprofits.

Thank you to the members of the Rotary Club of Eastern Independence for their amazing support!

Annual Food Drive | Spring 2024

Every year, YAC student leaders, Board and Advisory Board members, and other caring adults come together to make a difference. They volunteer their time to collect nonperishable food and household items at four area Hy-Vee locations. Their goal? Supporting three area food pantries and helping to feed those in need within the community. It's a heartwarming demonstration of generosity and kindness that truly makes a difference in people's lives.
