The Younger Chemists Committee (YCC) advocates for and provides resources to early-career chemists and professionals in the chemical sciences and related fields.  Its mission is to address the needs of younger chemists (35 and below) in the Society through programming and support activities, which includes social events, technical presentations, and professional development.

Our goal is to address specific issues facing younger chemists and serve as a voice in the ACS on behalf of younger chemists, thus making the Society relevant to early-career chemists.  We hope to help integrate younger chemists into the profession and increase involvement in all levels of the ACS.
