Youth Action Council of Easter Seals Greater Houston (YAC)

The Youth Action Council (YAC) supports the programs of Easter Seals Greater Houston. Their fundraising and program support make a real impact on our clients. Any high school student in the Greater Houston area who can commit to attending 4 meetings and participating in Walk With Me is welcome to join as High School Delegates on YAC. YAC members have raised over $300,000 to date through our Walk With Me event in support of our Veterans Services, particularly for our Veterans' Service Dogs. They also enjoy participating in other agency volunteer opportunities such as bowling with our Adult Program on Saturdays and serving as counselors at Camp Smiles and Camp Buckaroo.
