The overarching purpose of the Gulf South Youth Action Corps, a high quality innovative program of Operation REACH, is to get young people involved in the long-term recovery of the Gulf Coast region.
GYAC members are youthful college age (minimum age requirement is 17 years old) volunteers who are highly motivated and recruited for the sole purpose of engaging, inspiring and empowering local youth through fun and service learning. Corps members are recruited locally and nationally to commit to a rigorous summer or year of service through AmeriCorps.
These volunteers bring passion, brilliance and energy to youth driven work while providing additional capacity to local youth serving organizations striving to achieve high quality programming.
Mission: Operation REACH engages, empowers, and inspires children, youth and families through informal community-based learning opportunities.
