YAC - Youth Advisory Council

The Youth Advisory Council is an opportunity for youth in the Macon-Bibb community to come together and discuss issues they face on a daily basis and find innovative solutions to those problems. All Macon-Bibb citizens age 13 to 18 are invited to voice their opinion with peers in creative ways in this open, judgement-free environment.

Members of the council will participate in community service projects as well as travel for team-building field trips. Council membership is free.
