Youth Action Advisory Council

The Youth Action Advisory Council (YAC) is committed to building a strong connection with youth and the communities DAREarts serves. The council has brought together graduates from the DAREarts program that have gone on to demonstrate leadership in their communities around the country and who are now excited to contribute their valuable resources to DAREarts. Each member of the council understands the impact DAREarts had on their lives and will now work to inspire and help others.
