Youth Climate Action Team Inc. (YCAT) is a youth-powered nonprofit organization actively educating young people and taking action on the climate crisis. We work with mainly students and organizations indirectly tied to the climate crisis—civic engagement, women empowerment,  youth service groups, etc.—to expand the climate movement by bringing in new groups and offering accessible, diverse intersectional climate action opportunities. 

The  YCAT Finance department is proud to announce the “Fall Into Running” Virtual 5K Fall Fundraiser. 

A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from anywhere at any time. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym, or on the track.
