(May 11, 2020) – Keep America Beautiful is accepting applications for the 2020-2021 National Youth Advisory Council (YAC). This is an opportunity for 20 high school students (enrolled in public or private high school by September 2020) from diverse backgrounds to participate in a service learning and leadership development program.
