Creating Youth Advisory Councils

This resource was developed by adults and youth to:

  • Provide a “how-to” guide for starting a youth advisory council
  • Share resources and lessons learned
  • Empower and inspire schools and districts to develop youth engagement opportunities

This guide is for elementary, secondary, and district-level councils.

Youth advisory councils create an opportunity to build leadership skills for youth and can focus on an endless number of topics. However, the topic of health can be a conduit to a broader experience to implement skills that go beyond the individual and the school. The council’s impact could ultimately contribute to the health of surrounding communities.
