YAC Summit Projects

Each YAC will adopt a project to do before they get to the YAC Summit. During the Summit, each YAC will present their project using videos, photos, or any other creative means to share their experience with other YACs. Example of projects can include volunteering at senior centers, food drives, homeless initiatives, clothing drives, teen talks for youth, beautification projects, recycling projects, volunteering at animal shelters, and more. If your YAC hasn’t adopted a project yet or is in the middle of completing a project, please feel free to present on the status of the project or what your YAC is planning to do in the future.

Display Table

Established YAC programs will have the opportunity to show what their program is all about. Create a display and bring examples—photos, newspaper articles, brochures, guidelines from programs, etc. Materials will be on display throughout the summit. If you are interested in a display table, please indicate so on the registration form.

City Pins

If your group has city pins or items similar to trade, it is recommended to at least 200. The trading of these items helps build unity and communication between cities/groups throughout the Summit.
