Career Resources

The resources and opportunities available to you as an active member of the ACS can significantly benefit your career


Network through Local Sections

Local Section Younger Chemists Committees (LSYCCs) across the country encourage young chemical professionals to network at the grassroots level. Participation in local section activities benefits younger chemists in the following areas:

Personal growth

  • Sharper communication skills
  • Improved time management
  • Broadened professional and personal perspective

Support diversity

Involvement in your LSYCC can also be an excellent platform for better communication and understanding among younger chemists with diverse cultural backgrounds. Local Sections also encourage collaboration and partnerships with “minorities- focused” organizations.

The YCC provides funding for local sections to establish LSYCCs so that you can help your local colleagues make the most of the benefits and resources of ACS membership!
