Young Adult Council

The Young Adult Council is a subset workgroup of the CYE AC. The Young Adult Council includes two CYE AC liaisons to ensure bi-directional communication between the Young Adult Council and the CYE AC. The AAP believes that youth and family engagement in informing strategic direction is critical and greatly values this perspective.

Roles of the Young Adult Council Members:

  • Develop a mission statement and objectives for the Council
  • Create a peer-to-peer empowerment and support network
  • Discuss opportunities to work with the CYE AC and other stakeholders such as implementing a national needs assessment, developing products, publications, and other educational materials
  • Participate in quarterly virtual meetings
  • Other opportunities as identified

Recruitment:

The center is looking for young adults with epilepsy 18 years and older who are interested in serving as a member of the Young Adult Council. If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please contact epilepsy@aap.org.
