Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority Serving Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties
Composed of young riders from Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware, and Chester counties, the Youth Advisory Council is SEPTA's primary outreach group to riders ages 14 to 22. The Youth Advisory Council advocates student needs to SEPTA leadership, assists SEPTA in creating promotions, provides outreach to the region's youth, and educates peers about services and special events.
The YAC was first convened in September 2009, after a competitive application process that drew interest from college and high school students across the Delaware Valley. The youth serving on the YAC represent Philadelphia and suburban youth from a variety of universities and high schools. Membership is open to those between 16 and 23 years of age who reside or attend school in Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, or Montgomery counties.
The YAC's own website (http://septayac.com) now provides comprehensive information related to the YAC. Information includes Plenary Meeting dates and streaming video feeds, subcommittee information, Bylaws and Annual Operating Plans, contact information, social media links, initiatives, surveys, publications, membership information, outreach scheduling, and more.
