The Legislative Youth Advisory Council (LYAC) is back to work for the year! New legislative priorities:
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.
LYAC has 22 members ages 14 to 18. We are students from all corners of the state, from all walks of life, each with very different viewpoints on the most pressing issues facing the next generation of Americans. We discuss issues that Washington youth care about, and make recommendations to the legislature based on working and listening to young people in our communities.
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.
