Legislative Youth Advisory Council (LYAC)
The Legislative Youth Advisory Council (LYAC) was established by the Washington State Legislature
in 2005 (RCW 28A.300.801).
LYAC is a 22-member council of students who serve as a linkage between young people and state government. Council members examine issues of importance to youth and provide the Legislature with a representative perspective on the issues they choose as most important. LYAC is administered by OSPI through a partnership with the Legislature and the Office of Lieutenant Governor.
Participation in LYAC is a unique opportunity for young people to intimately observe and participate in the legislative process. Rather than learning from a book about how a bill becomes a law, Council members participate in the creation of public policy.
