About our Leadership Programs
Rural Frontenac Community Services in partnership with the community, have many opportunities for youth to become involved, give back to their community and complete their high school hours. There are many different ways to be a leader. We offer informal opportunities through our Kids Club program and more defined programs for young teens.
Youth Advisory Committee
The Youth Advisory Committee (Y.A.C.) is a volunteer group of high school aged youth. The group meets virtually bi-weekly on Mondays from 4:30pm to 5:30pm. Youth participating in this committee gain volunteer hours. The Y.A.C works with the Youth Program Supervisor to help give suggestions and ideas for programs and activities youth in the community may be interested in. The Y.A.C. also helps to plan and implement community activities such as Youth Month Celebrations for youth to enjoy.
Being a part of the Y.A.C gives youth the stage to advocate for what they see as a need in their community. We call our Y.A.C participants Youth Leaders and Advocates. Youth that are a part of the Y.A.C learn and develop skills for being a leader in their own community while contributing to programming in their community.
