The RiverBend Growth Association’s Young Adults Committee (YAC) consists of four representatives from the RiverBend Growth Association’s member schools plus two home school students and mentors from the RiverBend Growth Association’s membership. The high school representatives are two juniors and two seniors from Alton High School, Civic Memorial High School, East Alton-Wood River High School, Marquette Catholic High School, and Roxana High School.

This school year, the YAC students partnered with area non-profit organizations to volunteer and learn about their mission.  The students have had an opportunity to learn from these non-profit organizations: Alton Little Theater, Kreative Kids Learning Center, Madison County Child Advocacy Center, Riverbend Family Ministries, and Treehouse Wildlife Center.

This year the students have collaboratively created, coordinated, and presented a fundraiser with the anticipated collected proceeds to establish a scholarship fund, which will then be awarded to a deserving YAC student(s) at the end of the school year. The students, with the help of their mentors, have collected more than $3,000 in prizes. The prizes to be awarded are a MacBook Air, Apple AirPods Pro, a bluetooth speaker, Nintendo Switch, 58″ TV, Kate Spade designer purse & wallet, ALT season tickets and salon package, and three gift card bundles.

Tickets are 1 ticket for $10, 8 tickets for $50, and 20 tickets for $100. To purchase tickets, visit, call 618-467-2280, or purchase in person at the Benjamin Godfrey Mansion 6722 Godfrey Road, Godfrey Illinois 62035.
