Youth Advisory Council

Wisdom2Action’s Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) is a group of highly motived and passionate young people who are committed to seeing positive change in their communities. The purpose of the YAC is three-fold: to support the work of W2A, to provide advice on the decisions of the Governing Board, and to act as Ambassadors for the W2A itself.

The YAC is a 6-person group, with a Chair who sits on Wisdom2Action’s Governing Board. The YAC is an opportunity for W2A to integrate some of the key youth engagement practices we have identified through looking at many of our partners’ best practices.
