We Are now

General Services Foundation is now Youth Ambassadors of Service!


Our evolution into Youth Ambassadors of Service—YAS for short—was inevitable! In addition to a better overall alignment with our *refreshed* mission, vision, and values, we believe that our new brand better reflects what we do and where we are headed.

Mission: Youth Ambassadors of Service (YAS) mobilizes high school students by teaching them how to execute community service projects and connecting them to nonprofits through internships, and serves as an advocate for the nonprofit sector to promote the welfare of the citizens of the State of North Carolina.

Vision: We envision a world where service is accessible to all youth and they are empowered to utilize their strengths to create change in their communities.


Values: Servant Leadership. Empathy. Mentorship. Lifelong Curiosity.


Proven Process: Our two programs for students—Act and Advance and Young Nonprofit Fellowship—make up a self-sustaining pipeline that focuses on career skills-building, mentorship, and youth leadership.


To fully transition, YAS will undergo a staggered brand release. Our logo and name will appear updated in most places beginning January 1, 2024. We appreciate your presence and support as we update our information across media.


Our website will undergo continuous maintenance in January, however, you can access information about our programs on this landing page beginning January 1, 2024. Please note that during this period, some parts of the website will not be accessible. If you have specific questions about our organization, please get in touch with us at
