Youth Action Coalition (YAC) promotes youth empowerment through creative expression and social action projects. YAC’s core program, Arts-for-Change (AfC), is a series of distinct arts and media projects that pairs an intensive arts immersion with social justice education. AfC provides youth from across the race/class/social spectrum access to free, high quality arts programming, helping youth break down barriers, and offering a safe space for shared dialogue and collaboration. YAC is based in Amherst with programs geared for middle and high school-aged youth in Amherst, Easthampton, and Ware.
