Join your fellow YAC advisors for this annual gathering to share ideas, deepen your knowledge and further your support of youth philanthropists in Michigan. This year we will explore best practices on supporting youth-led work, the challenges and opportunities facing advisors who are not on staff with their community foundation and cohort time designed by similar asset sizes. This virtual engagement is open to community foundation staff or volunteers who serve in a leadership or support role with their youth advisory council.
