Young Professional Advisory Council (YPAC)

Family & Children’s Services (FCS) Young Professional Advisory Council (YPAC) was established with a three-part mission: Spread awareness about FCS, involve young professionals through volunteer opportunities and foster FCS future leaders through involvement. It is an opportunity for a new generation of philanthropists to emerge,

“The board of directors discussed this idea a few years ago,” said Tom Taylor, FCS’s chief development officer. “With the growing interest from young professionals who attend The Party (previously known as White Party), we recognized the need to steward these leaders.”

The group holds bi-monthly meetings between September and May (virtual during COVID) and integrates seasonal volunteer opportunities such as Care Card, Holiday Assistance, Brainiac Ball and The Party: Just Wear White.
