Core Council

The Core Youth Council is made up of nine students from Holland High, Holland Christian, West Ottawa, and Black River high schools. Each member serves a one-year term which begins in July and ends the following June.

Available officer positions in the Council include Chair, Vice-Chair, and Clerk. While the Core is busy working to achieve goals they also have subcommittees who help them accomplish tasks.

HYAC’s Core Council’s meetings are held the second Thursday of each month at 6:15pm in City Hall. The general public is encouraged and welcome to attend.
