Youth Advisory Council

Make a difference! Gain leadership experience! Make money!

Youth Advisory Council members will meet monthly throughout the spring 2017 semester to create a project of their own design that helps to improve ACES programs and add the youth voice to ACES leadership. Projects could include:

  • Field trips or service learning opportunities
  • Creating or improving ACES lessons
  • Collecting feedback from ACES students to help improve programs
  • Anything else the YAC can think of - the possibilities are endless!


  • TwinCities youth ages 12-22
  • Interest in work with young people, volunteerism, education, nonprofits, and/or social community issues
  • Interest in the mission, programs, and goals of ACES
  • Desire to explore one's educational and professional goals
  • Commitment to diversity and inclusion
