Do you see a problem in Arcadia that you believe should be addressed? This month, Arcadia Civic Youth Council launched a survey to get a better understanding of what we can improve on in our city. After thoroughly reviewing submitted responses, ACYC brainstormed and put together a long-term plan to confront topics ranging from teacher accountability to mental health awareness. In October, members from ACYC are planning to meet with Ms. Dillman, the principal of AHS, to discuss concerns and pitch potential solutions.
In the month of August, members of ACYC helped out at the City of Arcadia's Community Forum on Homelessness, which offered a space for residents to discuss homelessness in Arcadia. Our members checked residents into the event and responded to questions.
ACYC also hosted a blood stem cell registration drive in conjunction with Be The Match®, a nonprofit organization. To assist the thousands of people diagnosed each year with life-threatening cancers, Be The Match® made it their mission to save lives through cellular therapy. For more information, please visit Be The Match's official website at bethematch.org or see ACYC's informational video at bit.ly/acycdriveinfo.
Every month, the historians will upload a summary detailing the ACYC's many operations, including campaigns, volunteer events, side projects, and other things that come up during the month.
