The Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) is a youth-focused and youth-administered grant committee within the Jackson Community Foundation (JCF).   Over 800 local high school students completed the YAC Needs Assessment survey.  The results clearly indicated that youth mental health concerns are a significant issue for the youth of Jackson County.  Based on these findings, YAC will conduct a grant round focusing only on youth mental health projects.
