Youth Advisory Council

We're putting you in charge.

Who Are the YACers?

DoSomething.org’s Youth Advisory Council (YAC) is a group of diverse young people from across the country who tell us what to do. They're the boss of us.

What the heck do they do? YACers correspond weekly with campaign leads, helping figure out what we should green-light. They tell us when our language and references are lame. And, they remind us that it's not about us; it's about them. Always.
