The Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) is comprised of 21 middle and high school students from across the District of Columbia. The mission of the YAC is to develop a cadre of young leaders with critical-thinking skills who will share their knowledge and expertise around adolescent health issues. The YAC meets every week to develop youth led projects and ensure the activities implemented are meeting the needs of young people in the District of Columbia. The YAC is sponsored by the Office of the State Superintendent of Education and in collaboration with District of Columbia Public Schools.
