- The main goal of the Young Adult Community Service Team is to create an environment of service within the YAC Shepherding Groups (SGs). The Service Team researched a variety of projects and considered the needs of the Triangle as well as the skill set of YAC and decided to develop an Adopt-A-Teacher program in the Durham Public Schools. All of the YAC SGs participating in this program have been assigned to a teacher at either: Forest View Elementary School, Githens Middle School, or Riverside High School. The SGs reach out to their teachers to discover the teacher’s needs and to help them as best they can. The Service Team is focused on having the SGs build relationships with the teachers they are serving.
- The YAC Service Team also hosts service events throughout the year. For example, packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, babysitting for families at the church, setting up for the Women’s Leadership Conference, and more.
