YACYouth Advisory Council
The Youth Advisory Council (YAC) is made up of local high school students who have been appointed by their principals based on academic and leadership skills as well as an interest in environmental issues.

The council provides a forum for local youth to research water-related issues and to suggest fresh ideas to the Water Authority Board of Directors for consideration. Once suggestions are approved by the board, students plan and implement various water-related community projects.

During their one-year tenure on the council, students receive a condensed education on Southern Nevada water issues, including:

Both public and private high school students participate in the program. Students meet approximately twice each month and have some assignments between meetings.

Are any of your students interested in joining the council? Have them fill out the interest form.

Go to the Youth Advisory Council section in grades 6-12 for details about past councils and their recommendations.
