CLEARWATER – The Youth Advisory Committee is hosting an open house for students in grades nine-12 on Wednesday, Aug. 16, 3:15 p.m., in the fifth-floor Commissioners’ Conference Room in the Pinellas County Courthouse, 315 Court St. in downtown Clearwater.
The open house will provide teens with information about YAC and ways they can participate in local government. Refreshments will be provided.
Established in 2001, YAC was developed as a vehicle for young people to provide input and assistance to the Pinellas County Commission. YAC members assist the commission by helping to identify the needs of young people, organizing youth-based activities that benefit the local community, suggesting services needed by young people within Pinellas County and by becoming active participants, with their adult counterparts, in county programs.
