Youth Advisory Council

Wheels & Reels Logo

For more than 20 years, the Youth Advisory Council (YAC) at Truman Heartland Community Foundation has been empowering students in Eastern Jackson County to change their communities through philanthropy. Each year, nearly 120 students from 12 area high schools work together to give back, gaining hands-on experience in grantmaking, fundraising and volunteering.

YAC's 2021 fundraiser, Wheels & Reels, will be held on Saturday, March 27, 2021 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at William Chrisman High School in Independence. The family favorite Shrek will be the feature presentation. This socially distanced, outdoor movie night will help raise money to support the group's grantmaking and provide a fun, family friendly way for new students to learn about Youth Advisory Council.
