Congressional Youth Advisory Council
In an effort to promote active citizenship, higher education, and general awareness of social and political issues facing the DFW area, I have created the Congressional Youth Advisory Council. The Council will be comprised of students in 9th-12th grade that reside in the 33rd Congressional district. Through panels, guest speakers, lecture, and hands-on, community engagement, students will build on their leadership skills, discover effective ways to contribute to causes that benefit the greater good, and network with like-minded students and professionals. Deadline to apply for the Fall Semester is Monday, April 10, 2017. If selected, the first CYAC meeting is on Saturday, April 29 at 10 am.
Upon graduation from CYAC, students will be able to:
• Navigate through the complex and layered process of college admission
• Engage in community service endeavors without guidance
• Identify the roles of the elected officials that represent them
