ZYEP’s Youth Advisory Council is a coalition of young people ages 15-24 who want to make a positive difference in their community. ZYEP Youth Advisors provide a voice for their peers and utilize their strengths to mentor the next generation of emerging Zuni leaders. Youth Advisors sponsor and present at youth conferences, participate in a regular schedule of educational workshops, and take outdoor treks to culturally significant sites throughout the southwest. In 2020, the Youth Advisors prepared for three months to take a camping trek to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, the place of emergence for the Zuni people.
