About YPACS Seattle

The Young Professionals of the American Cancer Society (YPACS) is a community of the next generation of philanthropists, assisting the American Cancer Society with saving and celebrating lives in the fight for a world without cancer. Our organization is dedicated to advocating for cancer awareness and raising money for research and support in the Seattle area.

Founded in 2020, the Seattle YPACS board empowers emerging leaders to engage and network in the Seattle community as ambassadors to the American Cancer Society. United around a shared mission, members help spread awareness about early cancer detection and prevention, fundraise and volunteer to support ACS events, and mobilize young professionals to get involved in the fight against cancer.

Members of YPACS are exposed to the American Cancer Society’s network of more than 2 million volunteers worldwide. Board members are given the opportunity to learn from experts in the field, network with other professionals, and engage in countless service opportunities.
