Young Adult Council

The Center understands the critical role that youth involvement plays in informing strategic direction and greatly values the youth perspective. Comprised of young adults living with epilepsy from across the country, the Center’s Young Adult Council (YAC) advises and guides the work of the Center. The YAC also serves as a peer-to-peer empowerment and support network. Since its launch in 2020, the YAC has assisted the Center in executing a national needs assessment as well as providing critical input into resource development and website redesign. Additionally, two YAC members serve as CYE Advisory Council liaisons to ensure bi-directional communication between the Young Adult Council and the Advisory Committee.
