FIND Youth Advisory Commission
Over 80% of students across the Coachella Valley’s three school districts qualify for free and reduced-price lunch. In response to this, FIND created the Youth Advisory Council (FYAC) in collaboration with Girl Scouts Gold Member recipient Ashley Wilkins to educate the next generation on the realities and stigmas associated with systemic hunger while elevating the skills of youth community leaders. Student leaders from across the Coachella Valley will help advise FIND on hunger in our communities and apply new ideas for local solutions to child hunger. Council members will be selected for their willingness to go above and beyond to speak out and serve their community.
FYAC is leading the change of tomorrow by discussing solutions and taking action to address issues facing our community today.
Meetings occur every other month on a Saturday at the FIND Food Bank Office.
