Youth Advisory Committee (YAK) Corner
2015 was a productive year for the Youth Advisory Council (YAC). YAC is open to 7-12 grade students from Mackinac Island. They grant youth oriented requests twice a year, volunteer at Meals on Snowmobiles, All-Scholarships Dinner, North Chicago Soup Kitchen and gift giving to our more experienced residents around Christmas time. The activities are guided by Lynda Hepker and Chelsea Berkshire. They are assisted by Alison Sehoyan and Lisa Dziobak.
Meet the current Youth Advisory Committee:
Each year our YAC has the opportunity to make grants that impact not only youth, but the community as a whole. They have proven themselves very adept at ensuring all age groups receive a portion of the roughly $11,000 they have each year to grant.
