The Youth Activities Center (known as the YAC) is a drop-in center for middle- and high-school students (ages 12-17). Located on the south lakefront at Heinz Beach, and adjacent to the Boys' and Girls' Club campus, the YAC features a bustling snack bar (with daily lunch specials at "kid" prices), a friendly staff, televisions, games, table tennis and pool tables.

Weekly "YACtivities" include dances with a DJ, wing night, "Sundae Monday" and Tuesday breakfast sandwiches.

The YAC is open Monday through Friday.

There is no membership fee.
