At the Board of County Commissioners meeting on June 6, 2023, Vice Mayor Sachs presented a proclamation declaring June 6, 2023, as American Association of Caregiving Youth (AACY) Day. Caregiving youth assist family members who are chronically ill, injured, elderly or disabled. Helping to reduce the stress on caregiving youth includes a variety of services that impact educational performance, mental health and social needs. The AACY has served thousands of caregiving youth and their families in Palm Beach County, averaging 98% of program participants graduating high school and more than 90% pursuing post-secondary education or military service. This assistance has demonstrated that academic and personal success outcomes are achieved when caregiving youth are recognized and supported through the caregiving youth program.
