Click this link to apply to the 2016-2017 Washington Legislative Youth Advisory Council.
The Washington Legislative Youth Advisory consists of 22 members ages 14 through 18 from all around Washington, each with very different opinions and viewpoints. We discuss issues that Washington youth care about, and make recommendations to the legislature based on working with and listening to young people in our communities.
We are currently accepting applications to be on next year’s council until May 28th, and we want you to apply.
Washington students have a voice! Take this survey to tell us what matters to you. We'll bring your feedback to the Legislature on Action Day.
Our lawmakers in Olympia agree that the distinct needs of young people in Washington must be a priority. LYAC was created in 2005 to help legislators address these needs through the direct input of Washington’s youth.
We meet up to six times per year in locations around Washington, and every year we hold a Youth Action Day in Olympia in to meet with legislators, testify on bills, and give a voice to Washington youth by advocating for youth.
