Loudoun Youth Advisory Council (YAC)
The Loudoun Youth Advisory Council (YAC) is a student-led organization of highly motivated teens who reside in Loudoun County. As a leadership development, community service, and civic engagement program, mentoring is provided by the Loudoun County Parks, Recreation, And Community Services (PRCS) Youth Initiative and teen services specialists. YAC meets twice a month - on alternating Mondays - throughout the school year to work on special events and community service projects for their peers. YAC and Loudoun Youth Inc. co-coordinate and host the Step Up Loudoun Youth Competition and Youth Fest. Youth Fest provides a venue for teens and introduces the youth to local nonprofit organizations. This community event is attended by roughly 2,500-3,500 people each year.
