Resource for Older Youth
Kansas Youth Advisory Council (KYAC)
Youth who are, or have been, involved in child welfare services in Kansas may participate in youth council activities. Each Child Welfare Community Based Services Provider region across Kansas hosts a regional council. Members of the regional councils comprise a State Youth Advisory Council.
The KYAC mission is to unite youth-in-care in an empowering way and enable them to speak for themselves concerning issues that affect them directly, while obtaining the life and leadership skills that will be advantageous later in life.
To become involved with KYAC, youth must:
Be 15-20 years old
Currently be in care or have previously been in care for any length of time on or after their 15th birthday
