Thank you for visiting YCAL’s Sponsorship Opportunities Page. YCAL provides several key events throughout the year that would be difficult to maintain without the generous support of our event sponsors.
YCAL events offer a captive audience comprising of local educators, administrators, school board members, students, and various leaders throughout the community. If you are interested in exploring some upcoming sponsorship opportunities, please see the listings below.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss some events in more detail, please contact Kevin Appnel, YCAL Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org or (717) 505-0044.
