Teens Can and Do Make a Difference
Since 2002, members of Arkansas Community Foundation's Youth Advisory Councils (YAC) have given more than $350,000 to charitable causes benefitting children and youth.

What's a YAC?
A Youth Advisory Council is a group of teens who work together to raise money for their own charitable endowment. They use the proceeds from the endowment to make grants to local nonprofit organizations serving children and youth.

YACs meet throughout the year to learn about philanthropy, raise money and give away grants to meet needs in their counties. Lots of YAC groups also enjoy volunteering together and conducting surveys to learn about the local charitable causes that are most important to their peers.
