Circle of Support
These are staff and other youth supporters who have had experience working with youth and bringing in youth voice. They help out whenever we need project assistance, extra support and guidance, connections, a ride, you name it!
A huge thanks to the IWK Auxiliary for their incredible financial support for YAC each and every year. We could not have made it to where we are without them!
