Do you know a student who has a passion for politics or an interest in the legislative process? Then I hope you will encourage them to apply to be on the Washington State Legislative Youth Advisory Council (LYAC)! Applications are now open for all youth (ages 14-18) interested in serving on the 2017-18 council.

LYAC is composed of 22 dedicated young people from across the state. Their mission is to ensure the interests and opinions of Washington teens are heard and considered by state lawmakers.

When the Legislature is not in session, LYAC works as a liaison with youth organizations in Washington communities to educate the public on civic engagement opportunities for young people throughout the state. They are looking for a diverse group of voices to speak on behalf of Washington’s youth.

Applications are due no later than June 1st, 2017 at 11 PM, and can be found by clicking here.
