Young Advocates Standing Committee (YASC)

The Voice for Young Advocates

 

The mandate of YASC is to be a voice for advocates ten years of call or fewer by providing them with access to a community of peers and colleagues, and a platform within the Society.

YASC organizes networking and mentoring events, publishes articles by and for young advocates in our monthly newsletter, connects young advocates with volunteer opportunities and works to ensure that issues of concern to young advocates are addressed – both within the Society and throughout the profession at large.
