The Baraga County Community Foundation YAC is a committee of persons 12 to 21 years of age that represent the youth in our community by serving as strategists for positive change.
Youth Advisory Committee members learn:
- Leadership skills, training paid for by the BCCF.
- Tenacity skill levels, patience, and ability to successfully follow through with tasks.
