YAC is a youth run organization that strives to eliminate the stigma that volunteering is uninteresting by promoting community involvement and civic engagement in teens across Loudoun County.  By incorporating members' unique talents, we organize opportunities and youth events such as Step Up, Battle of the Bands, YouthFest and policy focused action meetings. 

The Youth Advisory Council (YAC) consists of Loudoun County high school students. Students are accepted into the program each summer and meet throughout the academic year to plan youth events for their peers, develop leadership skills and get involved with community service events throughout the county.

Alice Lin

My name is Alice Lin and I cannot wait for the upcoming events this year since I am YAC’s 2018-19 President. I’m so thankful for this opportunity and will not leave YAC down! I have loved being apart of YAC ever since I joined which was sophomore year; I was previously in the Outreach/Special Events committee. During the time outside of YAC, I am apart of my school’s senior class officers as Treasurer (for 3 years), a member of Key Club, NHS, NAHS, NEHS, Ed Rising, Mu Alpha Theta, and German Honor Society. On top of that I work! Balancing all these extracurriculars may be challenging, but YAC is definitely my favorite out of them all because it provides many opportunities to grow and become better people within your community. I hope to make our future events more exciting, more positive, and more entertaining
