The Youth Advisory Council (YAC) is comprised of various youth leadership groups that work with city departments.

  • Bring together youth leaders to advise DCYF staff on policies and grant-making that impact youth ages 13-24
  • Recommend and advance citywide youth policy and initiatives
  • Increase youth impact within various city departments, and
  • Build members' leadership and advocacy skills.


The YAC is comprised of representatives each from the Youth Commission, Student Advisory Council of SFUSD, the Youth Empowerment Fund Advisory Board, Transitional Age Youth SF, the Juvenile Probation Advisory Council and youth members of DCYF's Citizens' Advisory Committee. The YAC provides these members with a space to share and support each other's community projects and identify points of collaboration.
