The FFA Members are now the Creative Directors for the charity, giving them quite a few responsibilities to help grow this large scale project. FFA Member, Matt Kyazze has redone the Instagram for YAACAN with his team members, Eric Stone, Scott Vanasse, and James Wrinn. With the new photos taken by the team members plus the amazing video content, things are moving in the right direction.
