YPACS is a community-based volunteer group made up of young professionals dedicated to assisting the American Cancer Society in saving lives, celebrating lives and leading the fight for a world without cancer.
YPACS empowers and engages emerging leaders to network and build relationships while spreading awareness about early detection and prevention of cancer as well as the need to support cancer patients and their families through American Cancer Society programs like Hope Lodge, Road to Recovery and the National Cancer Information Center.

What do we do? Network. Learn. Engage. Fundraise.
Members of YPACS are exposed to the American Cancer Society's network of more than 2 million volunteers worldwide. They are also given the opportunity to learn from experts in the field as well as one another, and opportunities to engage in service. The group also plans and supports a signature event to help raise funds for the important work done by the American Cancer Society.
