Keep America Beautiful Youth Advisory Council Application Closes May 5
Keep America Beautiful, the nation’s leading nonprofit which envisions a country where every community is a clean, green and beautiful place to live, will close its application period for its national Youth Advisory Council (YAC) on Friday, May 5. Applications are open to students entering their sophomore, junior or senior years in the fall of 2017.
The 10-member YAC, which is sponsored through the generous support of the Wrigley Company Foundation, provides a national framework for Keep America Beautiful’s youth engagement, building on the model of youth service among the national nonprofit’s network of more than 620 community-based affiliates. The newly-selected Youth Advisory Council members will provide an original point of view in assessing Keep America Beautiful programs, implementing local service projects, and acting as ambassadors and leaders for youth service at the national, state and local level. The YAC has piloted and developed Keep America Beautiful education programs to engage youth in support of the Keep America Beautiful mission.
Goals for 2017-2018 include raising awareness and increasing participation in Keep America Beautiful Youth Initiatives to End Littering, Improve Recycling, and Beautify America's Communities. YAC members will attend the 2018 Keep America Beautiful National Conference in Dallas, Texas.
