Young Adults Committee

Chairman Stefanie Withers

The Young Adults Committee (YAC) consists of 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 organize and implement a fundraiser each year while also hearing from local member non-profits in the Riverbend community. Proceeds from the fundraiser are used for the Scholarship Fund that will be awarded to one or more of the Young Adults students.

This committee meets monthly. The mentors on this committee work with the students on their fundraiser.
