The Louisiana Legislative Youth Advisory Council (LYAC) is now accepting applications for membership from high school students who have an interest in representing the voices of other young people around the state.
LYAC is a yearly-appointed body composed entirely of students that addresses issues affecting the youth of Louisiana.
The council studies and addresses issues of importance to young people, including education, community service, employment, strategies to increase youth participation in government, safe environments for youth, substance abuse, underage drinking, and youth health and physical fitness, as well as other issues.
Members of the council are selected from a wide pool of applicants from around the state who display a strong interest in civic involvement.
The deadline for applications is March 15, 2013. Applicants may apply online or complete the PDF application and mail it to the address listed on the application. Both applications may be accessed at http://civiced.louisiana.gov. For more information, call (225) 342-6145.
