The Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation’s Young Activist Council (YAC) is led by volunteers who serve as ambassadors for CAASE in the community. The members of YAC raise awareness about the problem of sexual exploitation and fundraise to support CAASE’s programs and advocacy efforts. This new group, founded in 2012, was created to engage young, energetic people who are looking for a directed, effective way to spend their volunteer time.
