YAC Spring 2018 Update
– By Jamie Kurlej, Community Outreach Specialist & YAC Member
Through the Adopt-A-Highway program, the Youth Advisory Council now has our own sign on Highway 471 near Holly Bush Road in Pearl. This will help us spread awareness of NAMI Mississippi and YAC in Rankin County.
Quarterly Service Days
YAC will now begin holding quarterly service days to pick up trash along a section of Highway 471 between Marshall Road and Holly Bush Road. For our first service day in May (date TBA), we’ll be asking all volunteers to wear green to show support for a cleaner environment and for Mental Illness Awareness Month.
If you or your NAMI affiliate would like to volunteer for our first service day in May, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
