Marshall Community Foundation Youth Advisory Council Seeks Applicants for Membership

The Marshall Community Foundation Youth Advisory Council (YAC) is seeking Marshall area high school-aged applicants to join their organization.    

YAC is a permanent, standing committee of the Marshall Community Foundation comprised of Marshall-area high school-aged students who are active members of the community and are invested in Marshall’s future. YAC members evaluate grant applications concerning youth, and then decide if the grant should be recommended to the Foundation’s Board of Trustees for funding consideration. In addition, YACkers also participate in various community service projects. 

“YAC provides students an excellent opportunity to make an impact in the Marshall area.  The council also allows youth to develop exceptional communication and leadership skills,” said Jennifer London, YAC Advisor.  Students interested in applying to become a member of YAC are encouraged to visit the Community Foundation’s website at  Applications may only be submitted through the online form which is linked on the website.
