The Youth Activation Committee (YAC) is a group of youth comprised of members with and
without intellectual disabilities from across the state. This group works together throughout
the year to educate, motivate, and activate youth to become agents of change in their
communities and advocate for the respect, inclusion, and acceptance of all people regardless of abilities. The State YAC uses a wide variety of tools to communicate effectively such as email, conference calls, Facebook, state summits, and state rallies. The goal of the State YAC is to reach out to other youth to help carry out social justice for all people. YAC is comprised of students in middle and high school. YAC Next is comprised of students in college.
