Youth Advisory CouncilYouth Advisory Council
The Southern Nevada Water Authority created the Youth Advisory Council (YAC) to gain a fresh perspective on water issues. The YAC provides opportunities for youth to participate in the planning, policy development, and evaluation of water conservation.

Local high school students meet monthly to research and discuss issues. The YAC organizes and implements a water-related project and make formal recommendations to the SNWA Board of Directors.

A new group of students is selected for the YAC each year. Students from both public and private high schools are chosen based on academic and leadership skills as well as an interest in environmental issues. During the two-year tenure on the council, students receive a condensed education on Southern Nevada water issues, including:

  • An overview of water conservation, water resources and water quality issues
  • Water history for Southern Nevada and the Las Vegas Wash
  • Tours of interesting sites, including the Springs Preserve, Las Vegas Wash,
    Alfred Merritt Smith Water Treatment Facility and the Gardens

If you're a student and you're interested in joining, fill out the interest form.
