Circle of Giving | YAC members introduce their younger peers to the importance of philanthropy… and give them an opportunity to put it into action! YACers in Hastings and Middleville choose a 5th or 6th grade class and visit that class once a week for four weeks. Each class learns about philanthropy, and local charities are invited in to make presentations to the students. The class votes on a charity to support and then raises money through a short-term project. Classes have raised close to $1,000 in past years, but more importantly, through the Circle of Giving, YAC members plant the seeds of philanthropy early on, encouraging younger students to be leaders in the community and to give of their time, talent, and treasure.
