The Alabama Campaign for Adolescent Sexual Health runs two Youth Advisory Councils - Girls at the Center Youth Advisory Council (GACYAC) and Sexual Health for Adolescents Rooted in Equity Youth Advisory Council (SHARE YAC).
YACs are open to youth ages 14-24 in Montgomery (GACYAC) and Birmingham (SHARE YAC). They meet monthly to learn about sexual and reproductive health (SRH) topics, including preventing STIs and HIV, unplanned pregnancy, and sexual violence. They also learn leadership and advocacy skills. YACs are an opportunity for youth to contribute directly to our work with honest feedback and suggestions.
Our 2024 YACs are full, but check back in summer 2024 for information about our 2025 YACs!
