Young Adults Committee

Co-Chairman Lindsey Kahl, Midwest Members Credit Union and Alex St. Peters, RiverBend Growth Association

The Young Adults Committee (YAC) consists of two representatives from RBGA member schools and mentors from the RBGA membership. This committee focuses on the importance of guiding our young adults to give back to their community through outreach within the nonprofit organizations in the RBGA membership. 

The high school representatives complete a project and organize and implement a fundraiser each year. The project consists of completing a volunteer experience with each of the participating RBGA nonprofit organizations. All proceeds are split between a nonprofit agency and one of the Young Adults students (in the form of a scholarship.) 

This committee meets monthly on the 2nd Thursday of each month. The mentors on this committee work with the students on their projects and fundraiser.
