The Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB) is excited to announce that the CCRB's Youth Advisory Council application is now open! Youth (10-18 years old) can apply here (https://www1.nyc.gov/site/
The Youth Advisory Council (YAC) is a group of young New Yorkers who counsel the CCRB and have found innovative ways to bring young New Yorkers into the narrative about civilian oversight of the NYPD. In June, in tandem with the agency’s release of a report on youth and the NYPD, the CCRB released a youth-focused public service announcement. In 2019, the YAC planned “Speak Up, Speak Out: A Youth Summit on Policing in New York City,” the CCRB's first-ever full-day conference focused on the relationship between young New Yorkers and the NYPD.
