Imperial Valley Congressional Youth Advisory Council


IVCYACEL CENTRO - The Imperial Valley Congressional Youth Advisory Council (IVCYAC) aims to provide an organized youth perspective regarding federal issues to the Office of Congressman Juan Vargas. The IVCYAC will be responsible for helping to shape legislation, change policies that impact youth, and develop more youth and adult partnerships.

The vision of the IVCYAC is to provide youth with leadership development opportunities and a platform to share their perspectives on issues that are important to the community. The goal is for young people to be recognized and included as an essential voice in the decision-making process.

IVCYAC members will engage in positive change in their communities, interact with numerous members of the district, and further develop their public speaking, critical thinking and team building skills. Their participation will also enable Congressman Vargas’ office to understand more clearly and respond more effectively to the needs and aspirations of young people in the Imperial Valley.To learn more about applying to the advisory council, please visit:
