Rochester YCC

Rochester Local Section Younger Chemists Committee

A Committee of the Rochester Section of the American Chemical Society

The Younger Chemists Committee advocates for and provides resources to early-career chemists and professionals in the chemical sciences and related fields.

Within each ACS Local Section, the LSYCC facilitates networking and interactions between younger chemists and those in their fields and introduces young chemists to active roles within the Society. LSYCCs empower younger chemists — those under the age of 35 or getting started in their careers — to participate in programs that advance chemistry and enhance their professional development.

The national ACS Younger Chemists Committee (YCC) encourages the establishment of an LSYCC for each ACS Local Section across the country! We also provide support to LSYCCs as they encourage young chemical professionals to network at the grassroots level and engage in active roles within the ACS.
