Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) Youth and Philanthropy Fund

Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) Youth and Philanthropy Fund

The Youth Advisory Committee was formed in 1998 by the Berks County Community Foundation Board of Directors to help young people in Berks County address issues they face, and, with their peers, find and implement a solution. With the help of the youth of Berks County, this mission will be carried out using grants from the Youth and Philanthropy Fund. In addition to funding projects geared toward youth in the area, YAC and the Youth and Philanthropy Fund give members a chance to learn about charitable giving, grantmaking, and the importance of community involvement.
