Who We Are and What We Do

 
The Younger Chemists Committee (YCC) of the Virginia Section of the American Chemical Society serves the membership of the section by advocating for and providing resources to early-career chemists and professionals in the chemical sciences and related fields.
 
Its mission is to address the needs of younger chemists (age 35 and below) in the society by providing social, networking, and educational opportunities.
 
We are devoted to the professional advancement of younger chemists in industry, government laboratories, undergraduate and graduate schools, and postdoctoral positions.
 
We also strive to encourage young professionals’ involvement with community engagements activities.
