Effective Grantmaking At our February 2018 meeting, the YAC'ers were busy doing their initial review of the 14 grants received this competitive grant round. They broke out into small groups, reviewed the grants based on their 2018 Needs Assessment and came back together and compiled their data and questions for the potential grantees who will be asked to attend an interview during their next YAC meeting in March.
Collaborative Learning Events In January 2018, the YAC’ers and students of the Automotive Technologies Program at the Branch Area Careers Center had a unique experience. The YAC’ers gained knowledge about car maintenance through an information session taught entirely by the students of the Automotive Technologies Program. The YAC students got real life experience in changing car tires, oil changes and general knowledge necessary for all drivers about general car maintenance and repair.
Helping Our Community At our December 2017 meeting, YAC members purchased and delivered gifts to families at the Branch County Coalition Against Domestic Violence Shelter-house.
