Youth Action Committee

This is a committee comprises volunteers of all ages who help youth in Carbondale and Murphysboro engage in positive social activities and community engagement. We are looking for adult volunteers for this committee who are a part of the following sectors: business, judicial, media, law enforcement, and philanthropic.

The goal of this program is to:

  • Build skills including decision making, teamwork, problem-solving, stress management, anger management, self-esteem, character building, values, and resiliency
  • Receive giveaways, gift cards, prizes, and more
  • Meet new people and make new friends
  • Obtain a sense of belonging to a group
  • Enjoy socialization and field trips

Volunteers Needed

The Youth Action Committee (YAC) serves 11-24-year-olds from Carbondale and Murphysboro and is in need of adult volunteers for the committee. By volunteering your time, you can guide and mentor youth involved in the Youth Action Committee to participate in positive social activities and community activities and projects.

While our youth need to be 11-24 years old from Carbondale or Murphysboro, our adult volunteers can be any age and from anywhere! Volunteers are asked to attend semimonthly meetings.

Since mid-March, YAC meetings have been held virtually. Committee members can call in or join online meetings.

How can you join?
