A Note to YAC Applicants

We are incredibly excited and grateful to be hosting our 2024 Summer Leadership Conference in person once again! Members of the Youth Advisory Council (YAC) are a vital part of the success of the Lindsey Meyer Teen Institute. YACs are individuals who have previously attended LMTI and serve as leaders and role models for current participants. YACs undergo an extensive interview, application, and training process to make them into the TI experts they are. So much of the success of LMTI depends on the youth staff. Each year we select individuals from throughout the state to serve as YACs.

Some responsibilities of a YAC include….

  • Remaining alcohol, tobacco, and other drug free
  • Appreciating and promoting diversity
  • Promoting a drug free lifestyle to others
  • Being a positive role model
  • Assisting with group facilitation (Action Group and Process Group)
  • Assisting with cabin chaperoning duties
  • Undergoing 5 mandatory training sessions for preparation (in addition to Sunday staff training at camp)
  • Attending all 5 days of LMTI Summer Leadership Conference
