To promote philanthropy and improve the quality of life for the youth of Homer
Our YAC is an extremely hands-on model for youth engagement where they learn about philanthropy, volunteerism, and leadership. YAC provides grant support to organizations that serve youth in healthy, affordable and easily accessible activities in the Homer community.
The Homer Foundation recognizes the need for young people to learn about philanthropy and how it relates to building a better community. As the leaders of tomorrow, youth need to develop attitudes, values and skills that will enable them to effectively contribute to the betterment of the community.
