Youth in the state of Iowa represent one of the largest untapped resourced this state has to offer. While a youth voice keeps a face on state and local policies and issues, being involved in state and local policy decision provides youth with connections that may become very valuable as they try to get job experiences, internships, and careers later in life. In addition to connections, youth who take the initiative to get involved get access to a variety of opportunities to build skills and to learn the written and unwritten codes of conduct that tend to govern the "adult" world.
On this website, you will find a variety of resources that can help you connect to state and local youth advisory initiatives. If you are not finding what you are looking for, please contact us so we can assist you in connecting with others interested in influencing issues that impact you.
