YLC Office Accessibility:
- If you need to obtain your project supplies from the YLC office, you will need to make an appointment with staff before doing so
- For the foreseeable future, please provide members/volunteers with opportunities that don’t require in-person contact in order to include those who are not comfortable/able to attend
