Join NVEEE’s Youth Advisory Leadership Council (YALC)

WHAT IS THE YALC?

NVEEE’s Youth Advisory Leadership Council is a diverse group of youth, ages 15-22, that reside all across the country and exemplify traits of compassion, leadership and dedication to their community.  Their main function is to advise NVEEE’s Board of Directors and Executive Team on educational and social matters that they care about most.

The YALC‘s main mission is to provide youth with a podium to experience leadership first hand, to serve their community, and to help NVEEE better understand their part in how they can transform their world around them for the better.

2020-2021 Priorities Include: Youth Leadership, Mental Health, LGBTQ+ Issues, Mentoring, Social Justice, + Bullying & Suicide Prevention.
