The Youth Advisory Council (YAC) is a dedicated group of youth and young adults up to age 21, who provide feedback to The Children’s Center on service practices and policies that directly affects children, young adults, and families of The Children’s Center.

The YAC Provides youth with leadership and professional development opportunities through round table discussions with organizational leadership, guest speakers, training, and more. They help young people advocate for themselves and shape TCC services to fit their needs. Together with your support, these young people help build better futures for themselves and their peers.

Here are a few at Community Mental Health Association (CMHA) Walk-A-Mile at the State Capitol this year with program Coordinator Vince Asta.
