YLIA Application Portal Opens

YLIA is happy to announce our new 2021-2022 application process for all sophomores, juniors, and seniors in Macon County, IL.

YLIA is a youth-led initiative sponsored by The Community Foundation of Macon County and Rotary Club #180 of Decatur. Through monthly meetings and volunteer opportunities, YLIA/Interact members will enhance their leadership, communication, social, and analytical skills.

Members are familiarized with nonprofits and build an understanding of philanthropy through the grantmaking process. We strive to empower and impact those in need, and our slogan this year is “Be the Change.”

YLIA members learn through service, leadership, and philanthropy. They represent their schools and work with other leaders from 12 Macon County school districts. If you enjoyed seeing our 20-21 impact, then you will smile at what we have in store after the pandemic.
