Make a difference in your community with YPAC! The Young Professional Advisory Committee (YPAC) provides valuable support to Make-A-Wish Northern Alberta and the children they serve. We are a group of young professionals who share a common goal: to make wishes come true for children living with life-threatening medical conditions in Northern Alberta.

YPAC assists the local Northern Alberta chapter of Make-A-Wish, Chief Executive Officer, and Development Staff by acting as ambassadors for the Foundation. We are passionate about being active and philanthropic members of our community.

The YPAC year runs from September to July but we recruit new members year-round. Our annual goal is to raise $10,000 to adopt a wish and to raise awareness for Make-A-Wish Northern Alberta. Throughout the year YPAC members work together, volunteering and hosting fundraising events to meet our annual goals.

Volunteering with YPAC doesn’t necessarily require a large time commitment. We meet once per month at our Edmonton office to plan our fundraising events, and we have different levels of volunteer positions available depending on the amount of time you can commit.

  • Member at large – attend monthly meetings, help with event strategy, and share YPAC events within your friend circles
  • Secretary – provide meeting notes, help with event strategy, and share YPAC events within your friend circles
