Youth Advisory Council (YAC)

Are you interested in getting involved in your community? Would you like to develop your leadership skills? Young people ages 14-20 are invited to apply for the Youth Advisory Council (YAC). This group meets twice each month, from October to May. The YAC members meet local health care and community leaders, to learn about community issues and health care advocacy.

YAC members volunteer at local events, learn how to interact with school board members and develop their leadership skills. Members practice public speaking and use art to express themselves on issues they are passionate about.

The YAC is also involved in the Community Health Improvement Plan grant process that is led by the Community Advisory Council.

Learn how important your voice is! To find out more about the YAC, contact Joy Lotus at lotusj@careoregon.org or 541-206-7895. Applicants will go through an interview process, which will include the current members of the YAC.
