The Brant Community Foundation Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) is a committee made up of young people who want to make a difference in their community.
Our YACs are highly committed, energetic and want to be actively involved shaping the future of their community. As a bonus, YAC membership is an opportunity for high school students to earn their 40 hours of Community Service! YAC members are invited from high schools, post-secondary institutions, local youth leadership groups and the community-at-large. Members must be high school age up to and including 24 years of age.
One of the most important responsibilities of the Brantford YAC is to assist the foundation to make grant decisions for the Ontario Endowment Fund for Children and Youth in Recreation. The OEFCYR was established in partnership the Province of Ontario, to support participation in healthy and safe recreational activities for children and youth.
YAC Members received and reviewed applications from local organizations that provide services for children and youth. After careful consideration, recommendations were made to support youth programs at two local organizations: Arnold Anderson KidSport and Kids Can Fly.
