The Indiana Legislative Youth Advisory Council, or ILYAC for short, was founded by HEA 1162 in 2008. The Council consists of as many as 22 Indiana youth, ages 16-22, from across the state. The Council advises the Indiana General Assembly on topics related to Indiana youth by submitting an annual report. Previously published annual reports can be found here.
To learn more about the Council, you may read the authorizing statute and bylaws. You may also check out the Council's member-run website.
