What is MCYAC?

The Midland County Youth Action Council (MCYAC) is a group of energetic youth from secondary schools all over Midland County. MCYAC was started in October of 1992. Initial funding came from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation in the form of a $1,000,000 grant to establish a youth endowment. YACs give students the opportunity to learn generosity in the only practical way: by being generous. Students learn to be good stewards through making the tough decisions required in good grantmaking. They learn to serve, and through serving, they learn to lead.

YACs are structured just like the community foundations they are associated with. They have governing boards, and operations are carried out by a number of committees. The members develop and continue to modify their own operations.
