Made up of young riders from Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware, and Chester counties, the Youth Advisory Council is SEPTA’s primary outreach group to riders ages 14 to 22. The Youth Advisory Council advocates student needs to SEPTA leadership, assists SEPTA in creating promotions, provides outreach to the region’s youth, and educates peers about services and special events.
The YAC was first convened in September 2009 after a competitive application process that drew interest from college and high school students across the Delaware Valley. The youth serving on the YAC represent Philadelphia and suburban youth from a variety of universities and high schools.
Membership is open to those between 18 and 25 years of age who reside or attend school in Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, or Montgomery counties.
Plenary meetings typically occur during the third week of a month in the evening. Dates and times are subject to change. Visit the YAC welcome page for meeting information.
Membership information, bylaws and documents, committee initiatives and more are available on the YAC website.
