Dear Austin Young Chamber Members,
I hope you are having a wonderful summer filled with quality time and connections. The Austin Young Chamber Foundation (AYCF) has been hard at work building relationships and I’m excited to share some of our most recent achievements.
The Austin Young Chamber and AYCF had an amazing time at the CTX Signing Day opening reception! The morning was filled with excitement and opportunity as we celebrated the accomplishment and commitment of local high school seniors and their future universities. AYCF supports organizations and events like Central Texas Signing Day that promote the employability of underserved populations. We were honored to be invited to see these aspiring college graduates take the next step on their way to success.
AYCF also received the Austin Partners in Education (APIE) Rookie of the Year award. We are incredibly excited and honored about this recognition. APIE’s mission is to improve college and career readiness for students – a cause we fully support!
“As an organization AYC has gone above and beyond this year to support APIE!” -APIE
As an organization that supports college and career development, AYCF will continue to seek opportunities to be inclusive, exchange value, and be a proud supporter of organizations like APIE.
AYCF continues to be a proud supporter of non-profits that:
- Remove barriers to employment
- Impact individuals in the early workforce stage
- Increase employability of underserved populations
If you are working with, or know of a non-profit organization doing great work in the focus areas above, we want to hear from you!

On behalf of the Austin Young Chamber Foundation, we thank you for your continued support. We hope you’ll continue along this journey with us as we model the power of collective giving and foster a young professional workforce that pays it forward.
