Youth Advisory Council – Is a weekly or bi-weekly meeting between Rosie’s, Street Outreach and Young Adult Shelter staff and participants. The YAC is extremely important for youth and young adults who receive services in any of our three programs to share their ideas, concerns, questions and innovations with staff. CYS staff greatly value youth and young adult’s voice while creating or changing policies, programing, planning events and suggesting workshops and field trips. If you would like participate in the YAC, please talk with any Rosie’s, Street Outreach, or YAS staff.
