There are lots of ways to get involved at YCS!

The PTA is looking for volunteers to join the following committees: Fundraising, Communications, Technology, Yearbook, Auction. Want to get involved but don’t have a ton of time? Being part of a committee might be the perfect fit!  Have a talent for spreadsheets or persuasive writing? We could use your help and we can tailor the role for your skills and availability.
