It’s Wednesday and time for our Neighbors in Action segment, where we feature people and organizations working to make our community a better place. Today we feature the Capital Region Community Foundation’s Youth Action Committee or YAC. The committee is made up of high school students in the Tri Country Area who volunteer and distribute grants to area non-profits that serve youth.
Ashley Gulker is the Youth Action Committee advisor for the Capital Region Community Foundation. Sammi Ward is this year’s YAC president and a senior at Bath High School. Gulker says youth are in charge of the entire grant distributing process.
