Approval of the appointments to the Youth Advisory Committee (YAC).

 

                     YAC provides students countywide an opportunity to assist the Board of County Commissioners with identifying their needs, to organize activities that are beneficial to the community, to suggest services they need as a group, and to become active participants with their adult counterparts in county programs.

                     An Open House was held on August 24, and the application period ended August 26. As a result, we received many applications from well-qualified, high-achieving students across the County.

                     In 2011, the Pinellas County Youth Advisory Committee was re-established. In 2014, Resolution 14-94 increased the maximum number of students on YAC from 15 to 25 members in response to an unprecedented number of applications.
