The Youth Advisory Committee is a group of dedicated youth in grades 8 through 12 who work together to help our community. The members met monthly to discuss the concerns and issues of teenagers and they make recommendations on what type of programs would benefit the youth in our community. The Youth Advisors volunteer their time and energy to do beach and park cleanups, food drives for soup kitchens and food pantries, support our troop drives, fundraisers, and they also work with our younger children by organizing and participating in egg hunts, arts and crafts projects around the holidays.

Our advisory meeting will be held on the second Wednesday of each month at NSYC time 5:00 pm -- light dinner is served so please e-mail in advance! Please email us to confirm our meeting places and time nsyc2001@aol.com
