2012… A Youth Advisory Council is Formed
The Youth Advisory Council (YAC) formed in 2012 and included students from Anoka County’s many public high schools. The council offered students an opportunity to learn about the field of advocacy and social services and encouraged them to take an active role in educating other youth about dating, domestic, and sexual violence. In their respective schools and communities, Council members planned and facilitated teen dating violence awareness activities. At a state level, Council members participated in “Action Day at the Capitol” and the Youth Intervention Programs (YIP) Rally Day. Both rallies allowed council members to share the impact of youth programming with Minnesota. “The Youth Advisory Council represents an opportunity to bring together youth from all over the community who offer their wisdom, insight, experience and voice to raise awareness about dating, domestic and sexual violence within their school communities and beyond.” —Connie Moore, Executive Director of Alexandra House
