YAC Students make Snack Mix for Global Youth Service Day!

On top of their busy meeting spent with leadership training activities and planning for a May Grantee Dinner, YAC students worked together to support IM Kids 3rd Meal as volunteers for Global Youth Service Day.  High School YAC students also mentor 8th Grade Step Up Students by inviting them to participate in YAC Service Projects.  Working side by side YAC and Step Up students were able to create over 200 bags of snack mix, apple slices with cinnamon, and decorated bags to help make our 1st week of serving 3rd Meals a success.

Students also worked to create “Birthday Party Bags” which were donated to Zion Community Food Pantry.  Birthday Bags contain the essentials for a child’s birthday party including a cake mix, frosting, candles and decorations.  Food Pantries provide these gift bags as a special treat for a family with an upcoming birthday.

Thank You YAC and Step Up students for leading by example and serving your community!
