The YCB role in creating programs
The YCB is primarily a coordinator of existing community initiatives and programs. But from time to time, the YCB itself will create a program to fill an identified need in the community, such as the free bus service. Initiatives like this typically operate under the YCB for a few years, until we find a permanent home for the program.
