Youth have the opportunity to take ownership of their club through involvement in the planning and development of the club, community outreach events, social media, club apparel, and social activities.
Committee members learn and develop leadership skills, basic business, and secretarial skills, plan fundraisers, club events, and community outreach projects. This adds tremendous value and credibility to their college resume when they have documented leadership involvement with a community based organization or CBO.
Committee member terms are for (1) calendar year October through September. Click HERE to view the YAC bylaws.
Applications for the 2015-2016 Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) should be submitted by September 15th. If positions are vacant, applications can be submitted at any time.
