The Children's Trust Youth Advisory Committee Application

We are excited that you have decided to apply to The Children's Trust Youth Advisory Committee (YAC)! The YAC, a youth engagement group focused on leadership, community service and advocacy, is an opportunity open to all high school students across Miami-Dade County. The YAC meets twice monthly. The  group selects an umbrella theme they believe is critical to the Miami Community (e.g. fair housing, education). The group then spends several weeks learning about the topic and planning a service activity/activities on the topic area. For many participants, the highlight of the year is a trip to Tallahassee during Children's Week, where participants have the opportunity to meet their state representatives and senators, advocate for issues important to them and learn about other legislation happening at the state level. The following application will help our staff get to know you and ensure you have the best experience possible in the YAC. Should you have any questions, feel free to reach our team at YAC@thechildrenstrust.org.
