Be involved within the community, plan a fundraiser, learn basic philanthropy, and engage with community leaders!
Young Leaders In Action (YLIA) is a youth-led initiative sponsored by The Community Foundation of Macon County and Rotary Club #180 of Decatur. Through monthly meetings and volunteer opportunities, YLIA/Interact members will enhance their leadership, communication, social, and analytical skills. Members are familiarized with nonprofits and build an understanding of philanthropy through the grantmaking process. They strive to empower and impact those in need, and their slogan this year is “Be the Change.”
YLIA is happy to announce that on March 1st, they will be opening their new 2021-2022 application process for all sophomores, juniors, and seniors in our high school. Anyone interested may find more information along with an application at the following website: https://www.maconcountygives.org/ylia. The deadline is April 30, 2021.
