Youth Advisory Group (YAG)

In addition to the career and employment services for youth, Workforce Solutions Capital Area is also serving young people through the Youth Advisory Group (YAG) of Austin/Travis County.

The YAG is a collaborative group of youth service providers, educators, government agency representatives, and teen advisors who are concerned about the youth in our community - especially youth who face challenges to achieving self-sufficiency.

The YAG is focused on engaging youth and seeking their input, and working with educators, service providers, and other partners to facilitate:

  • Mapping the services and resources committed to youth development
  • Identifying gaps in critical services;
  • Leveraging, aligning, and seeking resources to address the gaps;
  • Sharing information on effective practices;
  • Collecting and sharing data on community needs and effectiveness (including the Return On Investment to taxpayers and other potential funders); and ultimately,
  • Helping more youth to be successful in school and the transition to post-secondary education, work, and civic engagement.

To learn more about YAG, please contact Yael Trevino at or 512.597.7108.
