Youth Advisory Council

The Youth Advisory Council (YAC) consists of alumni of Project 440 programs, the School District of Philadelphia, and other young leaders from throughout the region with a passion for music education. Participants meet monthly and receive leadership, project management, governance and advocacy training.

The mission of YAC is to use peer to peer influence to ensure diverse representation in Project 440’s programs and to provide feedback on program content. YAC envisions a world where all students in Philadelphia can grow and are supported in achieving music literacy.

YAC activities include:

  • Student outreach

  • Planning and hosting an annual YAC event

  • Contributing to Project 440 social media

  • Presenting an annual report to the Project 440 Board
