Youth Advisory Council
The Youth Advisory Council, or YAC (also known as United Way Clubs), is the teen outreach portion of United Way. There are clubs in every Williamson County high school and several private high schools. These teens make a difference in the community by getting involved in service projects and raising money for charitable organizations. YAC’s allocations committee chooses where their fundraising dollars will go.

Project at Graceworks—stuffing fuel bags
Thanksgiving Baskets (Full Tummies, Warm Hearts)
