Legislative Youth Advisory Council

The Legislative Youth Advisory Council (LYAC) was established in July 2005 to examine issues of importance to youth and advise the Washington State Legislature on these issues and related legislation. Final appointments are made by the lieutenant governor based on recommendations and selection criteria developed by the council itself.

LYAC consists of 22 members from around the Washington state who, at the time of appointment, are ages 14 to 18.  Members serve two-year terms and if eligible, may be reappointed for subsequent two-year terms.

For more information about LYAC, as well as application information, please visit the LYAC web site hosted by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction.
