Youth Advisory Committee – History

The Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) was established in 2001 as a way for our county’s younger residents to provide input and assistance to the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners (BCC). This committee assists the commission by identifying the younger generation’s needs, organizing activities that are beneficial to the community, suggesting services they need as a group and becoming active participants with their adult counterparts in county programs.
