Youth Action Council

Dorchester County Health Department

The Youth Action Council (YAC) is dedicated to promoting education and awareness for the youth of Dorchester County. By highlighting important issues such as substance use, tobacco use, and healthy relationships, YAC encourages personal growth and community engagement while inspiring positive change.

Our program is designed to give middle and high school students a platform to identify existing problems within their community and offer viable solutions to engage their peers in positive activities. We meet bi-weekly at the Dorchester County Health Department, where members can participate in planning outreach events that cater to the community’s needs.

YAC members earn service learning hours and receive additional incentives such as stipends and refreshments. Transportation to and from meetings is provided.
