YAC-D / YIAICD


Youth In Advancement In Community Development—is non-profit organization that links youth in communities and organizations to form groups with mentors from local tertiary institutions, the general public and businesses. Its purpose is to advance youth business and social entrepreneurship in an ethical and socially-responsible manner. Youth use their experience as a YAC-D member to become self-reliant, create wealth, and help others. YIAICD provides a new avenue for youth working individually, or in cooperative teams, as if they were business partners, and contributing to their communities.

YIAICD further believes that youth have much untapped potential which could benefit themselves and the adults in their communities. The first goal of the YIAICD program is for youth to become self-reliant and better skilled to succeed in life by actually creating their real entrepreneurial and social ventures. The second goal is for the communities to benefit directly because their YAC-D members are self-reliant and better skilled
.
