It is an opportunity for students to define immediate and long-term needs for teens in the community and attempt to meet those needs throughout the school year. YAC has successfully planned sports leagues, volunteer opportunities, planning sessions for City Council and recreational events/activities within Lake Oswego. Events and activities are determined by each year’s council in October.

Students are required to attend 9 monthly meetings, submit a minimum of 35 hours of service per school year and must serve as head chair on at least one event per year. Council members receive volunteer hours as well gain leadership experience, networking skills and more.
