2019-20 Youth Advisory Council Application
The Manistee County Community Foundation's Youth Advisory Council (YAC) is seeking new members for the 2019-2020 school year. YAC members are students from grades 9-12 in any Manistee County high school who have an interest in learning about philanthropy (donations of time, talent, and treasure for community good), want to learn leadership skills, and who would like to be a voice for youth in their community. Members are active in researching the needs of Manistee County youth, participating in activities to grow the Foundation's Youth Endowment Fund and recommending grant recipients from the Youth Endowment that meet youth needs. YAC members meet monthly during the school year and have opportunities to participate in leadership training and community service activities.
The YAC generally meets the first Tuesday of each month from 8:45am - 10:30am at the West Shore Community College Manistee Education Center (next to the hospital in Manistee). YAC members will be transported by Dial a Ride to and from all meetings.
Each year the YAC works to recruit members that are diverse and will be a positive representative of their school and community. This year, the YAC is seeking members from the following grades and schools:
Bear Lake - 9th Grade Representative
Brethren - 9th and 11th Grade Representatives
CASMAN - 9th, 10th, and 12th Grade Representatives
Manistee Catholic Central - 9th Grade Representative
Manistee High School - 9th and 12th Grade Representatives
