Youth Advisory Council
The YAC is a student wellness group committed to promoting and advocating for their peers to make healthy lifestyle choices. YAC students plan and implement a variety of initiatives throughout the school year that focus on underage drinking and substance use prevention.
The Illinois Youth Survey (IYS) is the survey tool we use to measure a variety of health topics (substance use, mental health, nutrition, etc.) so we are able to evaluate our efforts and address areas of concern.
