Youth Advisory Council


Gratiot County YAC

The Gratiot County Community Foundation created the Youth Advisory Council (YAC) to engage area youth in community service and philanthropy. The goal of YAC is to empower youth to be involved in decision making, be active participants in community service and leadership and take part in awarding grants that will improve the quality of life in Gratiot County. Any high school aged student in Gratiot County is eligible to participate. Please contact the Foundation for more information.  Also "Like" us on Facebook at GCCF Youth Advisory Council.

History of YAC

Starting in the 1990s, community foundations took part in the W.K. Kellogg Foundation Youth Challenge grant as part of the Michigan Community Foundations' Youth Project, creating 86 permanently endowed youth funds. As a stipulation of the challenge, the funds are overseen by Youth Advisory Councils. More information can be found at and
