Both Briana Costa and Daniels are glad they got involved in the YCOA.
A lot of them age into poverty," Briana Costa said, adding the YCOA spends a lot of time fundraising for the Clinton Senior Center and seniors within the community.
Bailey said she is pleased with the way the YCOA is evolving.
The Council on Aging will serve as the elder statesmen for the YCOA and provide support and encouragement as students host experiments, lectures and debates on aging issues throughout the year.
