Younger Chemists Committee

The mission of the American Chemical Society (ACS) Younger Chemists Committee (YCC) is to advocate for and provide resources to early-career chemists and professionals in the chemical sciences and related fields.

The American Chemical Society Younger Chemists Committee was formed to identify the needs and concerns of younger chemists and to develop programs responsive to their needs. We are driven by three goals:

  • Make the ACS relevant to younger chemists.
  • Increase the involvement of younger chemists in the ACS at all levels.
  • Develop mechanisms to integrate younger chemists into the profession.
