The Young Adult Council was created as a response to the lack of youth advocacy. Over time, youth
advocacy has shrunk dramatically and until recently, there was no need for advocacy group such as ours.
As for how this advocacy group is run, The Young Adult Council is run entirely by youth advocates, and is centered around giving the youth a voice. The YAC allows youth to get involved in policy priorities
affecting the disability community. The YAC allows for youth to grow their advocacy skills and gain first-hand experience in creating change. Strength in advocacy is in numbers; so come make a difference with us!
