Purpose of YAC

YAC is a leadership organization for teens in grades 6-12. YAC works with members of City Council and the Youth Services Commission to identify, address, and resolve issues that affect teens. Our overall goal is to instill a sense of pride in and around Colonial Heights and encourage responsible citizenship.


Teens interested in membership are encouraged to apply. Download the Y.A.C. Application or visit the Office on Youth in City Hall. For more information, please call 520-9289. Meetings are held on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm in Council Chambers at City Hall. Wafeeq Amin, Youth Program Coordinator, YAC Advisor
