Purpose of YAC

YAC is a leadership organization for teens in grades 6-12. YAC works with members of City Council and the Youth Services Commission to identify, address, and resolve issues that affect teens. Our overall goal is to instill a sense of pride in and around Colonial Heights and encourage responsible citizenship.
