I write to you with a heart full of inspiration, hope, and fulfillment. I am sad to announce that my term as an AmeriCorps member with YAC has come to an end. In these past two years I have grown professionally and personally with the support of such a commendable organization and spirited community of people. Through working with the youth, staff, board, and larger community I have gained a plethora of skills related to positive youth development & empowerment, event & community organizing, creative & expressive arts, as well as countless other pieces of the activism and non-profit realms.
I know that Youth Action Coalition will continue to foster remarkable relationships and essential change throughout the community, as it has made a huge impact on my life and many others throughout my term. I am proud to announce that Crystal Garrity, an Intern with YAC for the past 4 years will be serving as the next AmeriCorps member! I look forward to the significant change that will become of this organization and hope to stay connected in new ways. Thanks for a marvelous couple of years!
