The Youth Advisory Council (YAC) was formed by the Georgia School Boards Association (GSBA) to give high school students the opportunity to provide meaningful input to school board members. YAC members will have the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills and contribute to their community by affecting positive change for students across Georgia. Not only will these discussions impact the lives of other students, but it will also provided valuable knowledge for public education leaders throughout the state. Topics that the students will be exploring include: school climate and safety, social and emotional needs of today’s students, college and career opportunities, and much more. The goal of the feedback is to help aid school board members in their decision making and implementation processes.
