What's a YAC?
YACs are young people who contribute to their communities and to society as a whole. They are willing to examine their environments and identify both positive and negative aspects of the world they live in, but they are not content to just stop at examination. YACs are society’s change agents. They are dedicated to transforming their communities for the better. They disrupt the status quo—what’s common and what’s expected—in order to ensure healthy, safe, positive atmospheres for themselves and for those around them. They stand up, speak out, and stick with it until they see change happen.
